    Hi and welcome 

    Tbh I haven't heard of it being stopped without notice 

    When was your award due to end ? Did you get awarded after a tribunal ? These could be reasons why 

    I suggest you call them to ask why

    HI and welcome,

    What do you mean by cancelled? They can't just "cancel a PIP award"  Did your award end? or were you reviewed and then refused when the decision was made?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    If you had put in MR I am presuming you were not awarded enhanced PIP which is why they will have come for the car 

    Has your money stopped as well? If you have had a decision on your PIp claim that is the decision that stands until the MR decision is complete 

    Again you really need to contact them as we can only guess what us going on

    Hello @Katherine73 and welcome to our community.

    I'm sorry you had that unexpected news  :(  That must have been a real shock.  

    I've moved your post over to our PIP, DLA and AA board so our members can offer you advice on what might be happening and what to do next.  Good luck.

    I'm assuming you were refused PIP. What was the decision of the MR? If you could tell us exactly what's happened then someone will be able to advise you but without all the details it's impossible to give any advice.
