One week left to appeal, please help
Hi, I've had to apply for pips, been on high rate dla 10 yrs, just been assessed as standard pips daily living & standard mobility. Done a mandatory reconsideration, came back the the same decision, was sent in xmas post so now only have a week to appeal. My questions are, 1, do I need to go CAB or somewhere to get help with appeal to stand a chance? ( I've joined the benefits & work help thing online but feel lost) 2, Do I bother to appeal, is there much point? ( its been going on a year so far with them 'losing' my info sent in, its making me very ill) 3, Does esa get reassessed automatically now I'm on this rate pips or do I now have to have an esa assessment ? (I've been on it alongside Dla since it was changed from income support.) Can my partner claim any sort of carers/ attendance allowance or does this get deducted from any of my allowances? He's a managing director but had no work for a year. Thank you so much if anyone can advise on any parts, Samsam
