£43 per week
My husband received PIP but his conditions got worse and I asked for a face to face. Yesterday I discovered they've stopped his PIP altogether. This means he is now living on £43 Income Support per week. How are they allowed to disallow a benefit he was legally entitles too until I asked for a review as his condition is worse? These people are monsters. When the lady arrived from Capita she had no idea what any of his meds were for and I had to run through each one - she basically couldn't have cared less and was more interested making sure she knew her way home. I don't mean to complain but because depression and anxiety are part of his problem, I'm so worried about him. I've filed for a Mandatory Reconsideration but I'm told 83% of those fail. Once before he filed a Mandatory Reconsideration, it failed and then he got his benefit when we went to the Independent Tribunal but its very stressful and the 3 women on the panel were merciless even though they know he has problems speaking and interacting confidently. Please advise. We are in N. Ireland.
