PIP renewal form, likely to stop payments?
I have suffered chronic daily migraines since 1995 and they effect my balance, sight and speech. Also suffered anxiety, daily panic attacks severe depression and agoraphobia since 2001. I had been on DLA until 2016 when I was awarded my PIP. I got sent 2 letters, one for 2 years and one for ongoing. I called yesterday and the ongoing decision was sent in error as they had pressed the wrong drop down box! I recently got send a review form which i sent back same day I received it. Nothing has changed condition wise and I still need the care of my husband daily and with the agoraphobia I had to have a f2f at home which was successful. I'm now worried that they will stop all payments. Can they discriminate against mental health and agoraphobia. Or if rules have changed regarding the rules of claiming. I scored 22 points on my last assessment. Any knowledge or guidance would be much appreciated. Thank you.
