Still have had no news about my appeal, Atos manipulated l rated my mobility issues to state I can walk the new limit of 50 meters, totally untrue, , I'm left with nothing, ESA for me stopped years ago, once they got me off incapacity , and then as my partner workers 30 hrs so I couldn't get it, , my DLA was robbed from me by an  ATOS assessor and DWP , I have 3 older children, I have nothing , what do they want me to do , I can honestly say I'm disgusted by the government and its cronies being paid by them to cause misery and poverty, even worse the suicides, and the homeless,

    Have you appealed PIP decision?

    Hi @paul50meaters, I'm so sorry to hear things are tough at the moment. The waiting time can be so difficult, for so many reasons, and I really hope things move forwards for you soon. 

    I know it's by no means a solution, but Citizens Advice suggest the following if you're struggling whilst waiting for an outcome:
    Extra help you can get

    You can:
    • ask a charity - the Turn2us website tells you about charities that might be able to help you
    • talk to an adviser at Citizens Advice to find out what other funds are available in your area

    I'm turning to crime, I can't live with nothing, that's the truth, thing is the biggest robbers and low life's are our government, shame the public can't see them for what they are, I have now moved out of my house where I had 3 children, I couldn't live with nothing, it was a miserable life , shame the government can't be charged with what they did to me and my family, we did nothing to deserve it, it's over for us, totally destroyed my marriage and family, I've posted this as people should know what they did

    You’ve only lost ESA because you weren’t in the support group. Most people now get into the support group so you maybe need to think about a reclaim. As has already been suggested the PIP decisions needs challenging.
