Many PIP questions
I am new to all this and haven’t even managed to get the PIP form to fill in yet. My friend aged 65 and pre pension age has had a stroke and lost his language skills. He is now out of hospital and getting carers 4 times a day to help him. He is too young for attendance allowance but is entitled to PIP support I think. As the process of applying requires speaking on the phone he will need to fill in the forms. I sent for the forms by post over 3 weeks ago. They have still not come. His claim starts when the forms are returned. Can this be right? All views sought. Am I in for a long haul? Is this just the start of a ridiculously complicated process? Why are the forms not downloadable? Has anyone had the same problem?
