Migration from DLA to PIP
I attended an assessment done by ATOS as requested and was refused PIP. I have requested a Mandatory Reconsideration as the report by the assessor contained lots of discrepancies and untruths about my condition and how these conditions affected my day to day life. I can't understand this and particularly since I had gone for an assessment for migration to the ESA Work Group to the ESA Support Group which I was successfully transferred to last year. I assumed that they had recognised the difficulties that I was experiencing by having to sign on and having to look for work because of my arthritis and fibromyalgia which I gave details of on the ESA Support Group form. They were made aware that I was successfully claiming DLA on the low rate. Should this not have been taken into consideration on my new application for PIP. I had assumed that it would have been simply a changeover to the new PIP. It just doesnt make any sens Should I add this information to any future appeal if my Mandatory Reconsideration is unsuccessful.
