edited January 2019 in PIP, DLA, and AA
My daughter has had M/e , anxiety, brainfog, rainodes syndrome for a number of years and has all the conditions that go with it all. Im her registered carer. After her last pip interview we recieved a letter on Christmas eve claiming so doesnt have any problems and stopped her money.
can anyone give me help and advise on what to do now please as she needs the money to buy the things she needs to help her. She is at university were she doesnt manage to attend all lectures etc, doesnt have social life as always tired and in pain , cant get a job as no spare energy etc. 
She walks with a stick and uses a mobility scooter on very bad days

    Hello @maisiemay Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Sorry to hear about the claim for your daughters PIP was unsuccessful.

    I am one of the team of community champions who guide, inform, advise new members.  Who join.

    You first need to appeal.  Have you need to request a mandatory reconsideration.

    We have lots of information about appealing a DWP benefits decision on our website .  Which might be of interest to you.

    I would also consider speaking to CAB for additional support dealing with this or talking to welfare support at your daughters University.

    We are a friendly community. Supportive, care and share.

    Please ask if we can advise on anything. Some one from our community or a member of our team will be in touch.

    You are not alone. You are an important valued member of our community.

    Please take care.

    She has 1 month from the date of the decision to request the MR. She should put this in writing stating what she disagrees with and where she thinks she should have scored those points and why. She should also put 2-3 examples of what happened the last time she attempted that activity for all descriptors that apply to her.

    I'd advise speak to her local welfare rights or law centre for face to face advice.
