My money was stopped, my tax on my vehicle stopped, blue badge stopped!
Had an assessment by a young lady from Capita , What an absolute wast of time , the assessor answered questions that were not put to me , she lied about the whole assessment ,I have been disabled for over 20 years with a multitude of conditions ranging from severe debilitating arthritis of the spine ( discs removed from back , prosthesis and fusion of spine operated through stomach ) operation of foot due to arthritis pins in foot , part of pancreas removed with mass which was growing on it in feb this year , COPD Very limited movement . As i say , the assessor lied , i have home security cctv and played it back to show what a company who uses deceit as a format and informed the DLA a bout this .It is not allowed as evidence , i should have got a twin type tape recorder and advise them i was recording then give a copy to the assessor , what a joke. MY MONEY WAS STOPPED , MY TAX ON MY VEHICLE STOPPED , MY BLUE BADGE STOPPED . The appeal can take up to ten months to process . I am now housebound , can't use buses or travel in a car or taxi or afford to tax my vehicle which was adapted for my disabilities by my own expense . This has got to stop , assessors should wear body cams while assessing 'CLIENTS , and we should be able to record the people who can devastate our lives by lying on official documents . In this day and age with the technology we now possess it should be normal practice. As an armed forces veteran I am disgusted at the way I and others are treated through this system , Sorry i served and risked my life for the situation I now find myself in . ATOS did the same thing to me ten years ago , at my appeal the so called doctor who has a practice in cardiff , a hospital in india who asked me how many steps i could take and where i shopped , and insisted that i lived in a three story house ( its a two story) refused my appeal , how much do these doctors who are supposed to deal with our health get for asking no medical questions whatsoever about your condition get paid for this. No wonder so many people are commiting suicide over these unlawfull decisions . AN ANGRY DISABLED VETERAN.
