I no longer get PIP and ESA has been dropped below half, any advise please?
Hello everybody! Please forgive this late request but as you’ll know if you have fibro, insomnia is the norm! I’ve read so many posts on here over the years but just needed to join as I just read a post about a man asking if losing your PIP lead to also losing your ESA. And the reply was that No it shouldn’t do so. But actually mine just had? I’ve lost all my PIP award due to lies told by the Atos assessor and therefore the DWP Decision Maker also. And my ESA has dropped to below half what it was. I’m now on less than Jobseeker’s Allowance. Why?? This whole nightmare has seen my mental health go into constant suicide watch. My GP is gobsmacked as is my mental health team. I’ve contacted my MP for support and followed advice on sites and started suing the Assessor and Decision Maker. It’s possibly the only thing keeping me going, but obviously causing me great physical and mental Hell too. Can anyone advise please?
