They have stopped all my benefits
Hi to everyone I am new to this site and have no idea what to do. So I have bipolar 2 and ptsd and I had the dreaded pip reassement and when the results came in I score 0 on the living component but the lower rate for mobility. They joyfully decided to do this over the Easter weekend and before informing me. After and hour on the phone waiting they told me I had to wait for the letter before I could start a reconsideration. Over 10 days later I received said letter and the f2f report which left me utterly shocked. Not only are there some serious twisted truths in it but also comments like she struggles on some days to get out of bed or dress but it's ok because she doesn't have any visitor's. Comments like she struggles to make meals some days so has shakes in for thoses times but I have decided that as she shows no signs of malnutrition so can eat and cook. There were some comments on there that do include my problems yet when reading the decision letter none of these are taken into account. I have now sent off the mandatory reconsideration forms and medical records but the same day I received the pip decision from I also received a letter from esa and housing benefits reducing those too because of the pip decision which I didn't even know this was a thing. Even though I had my esa reassement done 2 months before and passed all their hoops and got my award again. So after this I had really bad manic episode and lost myself for a while but after a few doctors visits started to calm down and focus on the fight ahead. But now I have just checked my bank and they have not paid me any esa or pip for over a month. The world has opened up again and I am falling how can they just stopped everything without telling me? Has this happened to anyone else? Why write to me saying they reducing it and now find out they have stopped it all together. Yet again bad timing as bank holiday weekend but seriously how is right? I am sorry if this is a bit of a waffle post but I am completely at my wits end here please can someone give me advice on what to do?
Many thanks, Jess
