My son has autism and has been getting pip at the enhanced rate for care since 2015. It was originally awarded up to and including March 2019. In August this year he had a review and they said he would have a decision in 3 or 4 weeks. He's been waiting for his letter and had nothing come, so this week he phoned them and asked about the decision, they said a decision was made and his file had been shelved. They said someone would ring him and a letter would be sent. No one phoned him and today he got a letter saying he was no longer entitled to receive pip and they were stopping it from 25th September. (When in the original letter it says he had got it until March next year.) Can they do This? Also my son's condition and the amount of support he needs on a daily basis has not changed at all over the last 3 years. Even the assessor said he still needs support. I just can't understand how he can go from reieving enhanced rate for care to zero. It's not like autism just goes away. Does anyone have any advice please.
