hi my DLA stopped last year, I was on high rate dla and was compleatley stopped, I was wondering if anyone else had the same trouble as I had, I had my assessment at home, the assessor had lied on my PIP form, and I wasn't aloud my PIP, my PIP was made in November of last year, I put in for a mandorty, with no luck, how is it possessable that a quailfed person who works as a nurse for the DWP get away with it, I have put in for an appeal, It will be a year this November and I have waited 40 wks for a hearing, now they say its going to be some time next year, to be honest my health is at risk, I will be lucky if I see Christmas, never mind next year, I reported her to the DWP, they tock her side, but that's not the point, Its also how she made me feel, I had a loan out for a lie detector test to prove that I was telling the truth, I have also been watched by DWP, I have had newspapers covering up my windows, I know this isn't normal, I have nothing to hide, but its how they make you feel

    Hi @dyannelouise, and a warm welcome to the community! It's great to have you here.

    Thank you for sharing this with us. I'm truly sorry to hear about your experiences. Many of our other members have had similar assessment experiences and I'm sure they'll be able to empathise with how it made you feel. For what it's worth, I hope it helps to know you're among others who understand.

    I really hope you receive your tribunal date soon. It sounds like you're feeling anxious at the moment, do you have any support around you to help you deal with this?
