    Hi @mmm75 and a warm welcome to the community! I am sorry to hear that you have been struggling with this. I will move your post into benefit section on the community. Is there anything specific that we can help with?

    Thanks for replying , I'm on DLA still just got forms for switch over however I was on indefinite dla I went into custody in may for 8wks so they put it on suspension so on 30th July rang to arrange it lifted however it's still not been sorted although my husband works he's been left to pay everything totally so no money I don't even get 10p myself to live off and expected to live of the hubby with him paying everything already I've even had to go food bank my mental health is getting worse by the day on top of my other illnesses I tried to run away but was found and still not been seen since coming out of custody by mental health team although suicidal daily , then on top of this I'm my son's appointee his pip stopped on 2nd August as he was only awarded 2yrs at a time last year I won at tribunal for him but as it had taken a year was only a year left on the award they had all the rrnewal forms back in time but he's still awaiting accessing f to f at home so his benefit stopped completely yet it's there delay

    Hi @mmm75 I am really sorry to hear this. It definitely sounds like you have a lot on! Citizens Advice is able to help with filling in forms so this might be something to look into. Also, if you are ever feeling down and want to talk to someone about it then please contact Samaritans or MIND. I hope the community can support you through this. Have a lovely day :)
