PIP ends October - no 6 month extension, why?
I have a question. My PIP award ends in October. In March I was told by PIP-DWP that I should expect 6 months extension. Yesterday received letter that my awards ends - and I supposed to call the New Claim number.
Question is: Would it make sense to call PIP and ask if they would give me the 6 months - or I have no chance with that?
Could anyone advice me?
I'm too unwell to deal with anything in regards to benefits. They finished me off mentally during previous reassessments. After that experience I got a letter from my GP (who just left the surgery) - requesting a paper reassessment in the future.
Charity which usually helps me is shut due to covid - they doing their best from private homes - so can't assist me with the call. I do hope they will help me with forms but it takes a month now, for them to even call me back.
Lady, who helps me can't be present during a phone call - her husband surfers from Covid - and I do self - isolate..
In regards to support letters, my GP tells me she doesn't know what to write - I have to tell her what I want in the letter...
I suffer from ME and other issues - my brain just cuts off when I get stressed and anxious. Talking and breathing the air out tigers tachycardia and I'm in total mess - just not able to make an responsible conversation. Often when asked questions I answer some nonsense or just agree with the other person... about whatever
any advice greatly appreciated
