What is PIP supposed to for??
Hey all, If you get Carer's allowance you can use that to pay for someone to help you with your daily needs. It may be doing your shopping, cleaning or doing your laundry. PIP?? What do 'they' give us the money for? I'm not complaining, I just want to know what 'they' think we use it for? I was awarded (thanks) PIP in Nov 2016 until Nov 2019...lower living & lower mobility. Brilliant..Thanks again...a year before itsi due to run out they send me a 'review'..now let me get this right.."to see if you're getting the help you need" well actually "no not really" filled the form in including relevant info...I wait 4 months to find out I have to go to a face to face...So I go to that (not the best 1 I've had)...3 weeks later I get the letter I've been waiting by the letterbox for every day...What do I see....Im I sorry this isn't what you were expecting..WHAT?? they've taken PIP off me altogether!!!! Great day yippppppeeee!! So they ask me a whole 12 months before it's due to run out if I'm "getting what I need" instead save themselves 6 months of paying out by cancelling it anyway..Great way of tricking the disabled DWP...hope you're proud of yourselves.. I've asked for a mandatory reconsideration.... it's taking up to 10 weeks!! Bye bye private treatment that I used my PIP for...So I ask again "What do the DWP want us to use the money for? If not things to help us?" Thanks for listening xx
