Reapply for PIP

Sim1y3 Member Posts: 10 Connected
Ok I'm really confused and don't know what to do. In October I was rejected for PIP because I was too sick to attend the assement. Then in February my ESA was cut i didn't know why so mum phoned esa for me. The lady on the phone told me it was cut because I don't get DLA anymore and was rejected for PIP. She said I can't get my full ESA back until i get pip. She told mum to help me reapply then I'll get my full ESA back because I really need more money I can't afford anything any more I can't cope. I have autism and anxiety and learning difficulties as well as a wheelchair user and have sensory difficulties along with speech problems. Please can someone help

    Which group are you in for ESA WRAG or Support Group? The premium that you lost when your DLA stopped could have been the severe disability premium if you lived alone an no one claimed carers allowance for looking after you.

    To claim this premium you'll need to be awarded the daily living PIP. Yes, you can re-apply but be aware that it's most likely you'll need to attend a face to face assessment again because most people have them. Evidence will also be needed to support your claim. A claim could take several months, depending on backlog.
