Received letter from pip
1st time posting, so go easy on me? , So here's my story so far:
I 1st applied for pip Sept 2018. Got 0 points for everything. Done MR and still the same result. So March 2019 I appealed to tribunal.
I have Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Trigeminal Neuralgia, depression/anxiety, underactive thyroid plus various other conditions. I take a cocktail of meds to control these illnesses and I'm in constant daily pain and so exhausted. I rarely leave the house, only to go to medical appointments.
My question is this:
I received a letter from pip saying they have all the information they need to c if they can award pip, thing is I'm awaiting a tribunal date so don't understand why they sent me a letter?
How long is the wait for tribunal?
