Hi guys need some advice and maybe some support. I was awarded pip for daily living at the higher rate and nothing for mobility back in 2015 (I think) and nothing for mobility. Last nov I was sent a letter saying that my award was being reviewed. I suffer from terrible mental health issues and have done for most of my life - since my late teens I’m now nearly 40. On the form I said that my symptoms have become worse and I find it even more difficult to go outside. I was invited to a face to face back in March. This week on Monday I was sent a letter saying my daily living has been totally stopped but I will get the lower rate for mobility. I also got a copy of the face to face report. The report was totally a lie, it was the opposite of everything I said during the thing. The nurse who did it wrote done the absolute opposite of what I told her about my day to day living and I was scored 0 on pretty much everything. I immediately phoned them and asked for a mandatory reconsideration. And I also sent them a letter to explain why I think the decision is wrong. Today I got a letter regarding my ESA and that’s been drastically reduced as a result of me not getting daily living. All in all I will be £520 a month worse off because of that horrendous face to face that I had to endure. Does anyone know how long the mandatory part takes and do I have any chance of the decision being overturned? And also any moral support is most welcome!! Thanks in advance.
