How long a waiting time for decision?
Just looking for some advice, my son who has asphergers syndrome has been declared unfit for work by his GP. He currently gets high rate PIP after a medical I was made his appointee. I claimed UC for him for last year but was sent for medical (GP has provided 2 sick notes for 6 month each). I am his main carer, medical very stressful for him outwith normal routine!! And previously done for PIP. DWP for some reason although have copy of my apointeeship can’t find on records anymore?? Can anyone tell me procedure for waiting time for decision and if any and how long backdated money is for? Having spoken to DWP had conflicting advice and I’m totally lost & really worried financially as I don’t work being his main carer. Please any advice for stressed mum of 17 soon to be 18 yr old son.
