PIP

Hi all 
Just a quick update from my previous texts.  To recap I had my PIP stopped by letter it said  a doubt had arisen regarding my health conditions the letter said I had no right of appeal.  However I went to the CAB who were nice but didn't know what to do.  Then I decided to email my MP he wrote me back saying he would support me and emailed a resolution manager in the DWP later she emailed him saying my case was in a que on someones desk but I could send in evidence at any time.  My MP forwarded the email and I emailed her directly.  I received a response by post the DWP manager advising that she couldn't email me back as the link was not secure but my case was being dealt with and I could send in evidence at any time.  I spent ages sifting through evidence of my conditions and sent it all in by post.  When I arrived home from the post office there was a brown envelope in the door my heart sank  when I opened it it was as suspected from the DWP advising they were restating my PIP! They hadn't even received the evidence! No explanation of why they stopped it at all! My money was to be back dated from the date they stopped it!  I suspect maybe my MP pushed them along a bit.  I wondered what others thought of this ordeal?  Have a good day all the sun is out x
