How do i appeal against my PIP descion
I was turned down for pip. I then contacted pip and said a lot of the things on the report were not true and was not sure where the advisor got this information from. I told them that it was like reading someone's else report. I also said, a lot of the questions that the assessor claimed they asked, they did not, and not got a clue where they got the answer to the false questions.
They contacted me and said they would launch an investigation into this matter and eventually i got a letter saying that they had investigated what went on. They said the assessor could not remember me. However, the investigation said the service that they provided me fell well short of what i should have received.
They said they would forward the investigation onto DWP but could not promise that it would do any good. I applied for a reconsideration request and got turned down. They gave me four points which my doctor thought was shocking.
I have serious health problems that stop me from working and i rely on others to help me.
I would like to know what is my next step to appeal.
I would also like to know if anyone has taken PIP to court over their descion.
