    HI,

    I'm sorry to hear this. I'm afraid only DWP will be able to tell you why they've suspended you payments. PIP is DWP and they wouldn't make a referral to theirself. Do you mean they've referred your claim to a decision maker?

    Very difficult to give any advice here without knowing all of circumstances. My advice is to speak to your local CAB or other advice centre and you'll be able to tell them everything and they will assist you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Welcome to the community @tarahull89. Sorry to hear this has happened. If CAB's not an option for you, you can probably find some local help at advicelocal which I know Poppy frequently recommends.

    I get pip every month now.It got stopped or was reduced some time ago when teresa may had it stopped and then because of a row between the disabled clayments and Ian Duncan Smith, the then minister for the DWP. He resigned over it, then teresa may reinstalled pip and said that those who were getting pip and got it stopped or reduced would get it all backdated. I'm wondering where my back dated money is? ?
