Merry Christmas DWP
After our daughter was refused her PIP allowance from 4 April 2019 plus losing the SDA, totalling approx £600 per month, we obviously appealed, contacted our then local MP Sir Norman Lamb, CAB and took advice through, SCOPE, I received a phone message on Sunday morning, from the DWP asking if I could ring them. Today I rang the number and following several security questions, I was talking to the Appeals Officer. He told me that after going through her 365 page Appeal, he had noticed several areas which were wrong, resulting in her PIP being reinstated from 4 April 2019,plus she will also get her SDA reinstated too. I explained that receiving a call on a Sunday morning I had thought it was a cold caller ringing but he told me that because of all the appeals they were working 7 days a week to sort the mess out. She will obviously receive backpay......we were waiting for a date for the Tribunal . Can’t thank them enough, especially at Christmas time. How many more disabled people have had or are going through this shambles.??
