    Did you request the Mandatory Reconsideration for the PIP?

    If someone claims carers allowance for you then yes you will lose the severe disability premium. If you live alone then it's definitely worth stopping the person claiming carers allowance so you can re-claim the severe disability premium. £65 per week is alot to lose from your money.

    Hi @deedee55, I'm so sorry to hear you lost so much money. Were you switching from DLA to PIP? Did you ever appeal the PIP decision?

    Do you currently have any support for your mental health? I can imagine the financial situation is having a big impact on your life. Do you work or claim ESA at all?
