Hi i won an appeal on the 31st Aug 2018 DWP now want a statement of reasons for an error on the paper work I think its because of the change from DLA .. to PIP There is meant to be a months grace for the poor DWP to sort themselves out ....im am in such a mess ive got baliffs knocking lost my car ages ago lost dla over a year ago anyone waited for a statement of reasons ? how long does that take ? we got an appointment with the local mp mid october ... just so disgusting how this process is ... I was multiple raped in prison and was a wreck in court i cant go through that again ..i feel like giving up on life as these people this benefit is meant to help to take the stress out of life ... I would be interested to hear from anyone in my shoes or if i can advise anyone ....just if you have an appeal and win make sure magistrate remembers the months change from dla ...to pip ...good luck  everyone

    Stories like yours are common.
    I decided to object to being told to hand over money at work - £8000 with a 9mm pistol pushed in my face.

    After a fight to try to get the weapon out of his hands, his mate gave me the good news with a metal baseball bat across the back of my head which sent me to my knees. Still refusing to open the safe I received two bullets in the stomach for my trouble as they just walked away.
    That was the start of my deterioration of my health.
    Had DLA High Mobility & Care since it happened - 1995. 
    Had 3 failed PIP assessments in the past 5 years - now 70 and gave up as I had no more fight left in me. I just don't know what the hell the government want from me.
