How About This PIP

Hi How about this to help fix PIP This is the problem the ones doing the Assessments have no comeback how about if you go to the Tribunal the one who did the Assessment pay for it and not the tax payer and if you win at the Tribunal the Assessments firm pay you the back pay and have  14 days to do it or pay a fine on top for all days past the 14 days and not put it on the Government or the Tax Payer so that there Assessments are done the right way in the first place and not keep putting people with mental health issues going worse day by day and  physical disability the same way and not just making money year on year for doing a bad job in the first place at the Assessment

    What you’re talking about is the idea that rhe “polluter pays”. See

    It’s been suggested for social security a number of times over the years she I think it’s a great idea but the payment should be made by DWP as they’re the party which takes often plainly ridiculous reports and accepts them in the face of other contradictions.

    Hello @Gerald I do not understand how that  would work.

    Common sense would be surely as it has been said before.

    Something in the back of my mind proposals.  Unless I have got this wrong.

    Would be arrive at assessment. Advocate waiting for you to represent you. Speak on your behalf.  If needed.

    All evidence medical and statements taken into account.  Including witness statements from friends, family.

    Video recorded and statement typed up. Verified by assessor and claimant true record. One copy for claimant one to DWP.

    Any errors or omission corrected.  No physical.  

    This would what I want.

    Problem is when the assessors working for a company . Profits and money plays a part.
