Scared of losing PIP and not being told
I asked for PIP to consider me for mobility payment as health has deteriorated over past two years. The usual six month wait for assessment. I had a letter from local council saying PIP have said you now gone to standard rate care component when I was getting advanced. This meanes I am going to loose around £300 as I get extra ESA the severe disability premium. I cannot believe that I have not been informed by PIP themselves but if my condition has worsened to the point where I need help due to mobility issues why have I not been told. I am so stressed and have been crying. I have worked up until two years ago, full time but was given a settlement package which states medical grounds and Ill health. If I loose this money I am going to have bailiffs at my door as am already in arrears with every bill. Help?? Thanks.
