PIP and ESA merger proposals on FACE TO FACE

teejays1617teejays1617 Member Posts: 92 Courageous
So the latest news that Amber Rudd is sending out ,is linking all information on a computer system for Disabled people receiving ESA and PIP and a ONE FACE TO FACE ASSESSMENT to cover both benefits. Also the proposed action to get over 1 million disabled people back to work over the next few years.  What worries me is the fact as DPAC mentions ,is this the TROJAN HORSE
to damage and destroy benefits that desperately ill and disabled people need.

    What what can we say, just speculating what may or could happen is only going to cause anxiety and stress to many people thinking of claiming or coming up for a review of the benefits as their award nears an end date. I expect there will be a consultation on the issues that need to be addressed before any changes are made or implemented.

    There's nothing to comment on because there's been no further information about what exactly is going to happen. I most certainly won't worry about anything until i know i have something to worry about because this just makes my condition a million times worse.
