Hi

I had my PIP stopped by letter it said a doubt has arisen about my continued entitlement to PIP.

There is no right of appeal against this decision. I've been on PIP for almost six years. I have been suffering several Illnesses which include but not limited to Schizophrenia, mental disorder and limb girdle muscular dystrophy. There is no explanation of why they stopped it at all!

    Hello @Farhadaliuk Thank you for your enquiry. I am unsure of an answer to your question..

    Benefits are confusing and complex. Some one from our team or a member of our community might advise.

    Have you spoken to CAB about this.  They can advise . Have expertise and knowledge on benefits.

    Hope that helps.

    Please take care.

    You should get some advice from Welfare rights or citizens advice about this.

    Yes face to face advice is needed, it's impossible to advise on an internet forum.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
