Capita lied about my PIP what a mess and horrible company they are, Fabricated everything and lied.
Hiya everyone, I will hang around on here as I like to chat etc. I have suffered with PTSD and severe depression since childhood due to some horrors I went through, I obviously won’t go into details on here but its affected my entire life, Worst thing is I was innocent.
I have become worse as I’ve got
older, my memory is dire sometimes but other times its fine, So I found out a
few months ago about the PIP and applied for it, I had an assessor arrive who
was a Sikh man, Very polite and punctual, shook my hand and off we went with
the assessment, He asked me around 13 questions in 20 minutes, he stated he was
on a flyer as it was friday and I was his last assessment, He kinda had one
foot in the door one out so to speak.
I really and honestly struggled with some of the questions and my wife had to help, I seem to just go "BLANK" and sometimes even forget what I have been asked?
I was never like this?
So he left and a month later I received the letter with the results in, Now baring in mind I have seen several doctors, several psychiatrists and last week a psychiatric nurse and ALL of them told me I am a sufferer of PTSD and severe depression. In fact I was in the Army years ago and was kicked out due to mental instabilities by a military psychiatrist. Way before I knew about this PIP.
So I opened the letter and honestly
thought I had been sent the results of someone elses? What a Shower of it was.
Lie after lie? Fabricated wordings and statements that was nothing like what
happened in the assessment?
He said that due to my image of been clean, well groomed, smartly dressed he awarded me NO points on that question? That’s on the border of being discriminatory.
He also said I DID NOT need any help with the questions? My wife helped me time and time again with them again he lied.
I pulled his results up about 11
times due to lies, I looked online and found this is an issue that Capita has
been doing for a while with its Assessors, My wife applied to be an assessor
last year with them and found that EVEN someone who has been a carer is classed
as having a medical background that’s what she was told by them anyways?
How are they getting away with this? More so the volume of them and the amount of time its been happening?
I went a bit further than most people would do, I have been online for just over 20 years and have a profound way of dealing with issues that are not right.
I emailed several MP's including my local one, I even emailed ALL the senior management at Capita and politely went into details about this with them and I haven’t received a single reply.
Just to let you all know some home truths about Capita here is a series of links where people have had similar issues, BTW I have just appealed so I am not sure how long it takes but when I hear from them I will post on here, IF Anyone has a similar story with PTSD ect and have appealed id be interested to hear what happened?
