    Use this to find an organisation that will help with form filling.

    Be very clear. You do not have to pay for your GP records. They should now be completely free. However, they are often not relevant to a PIP claim so if you’re getting firm filling help ask the adviser for their take on whether you need them.

    Hi, guys, I had my phone call for filling my pip form in , it's long-form to fill in 😬 I am to put in my specialist that deals with me being paralysed down the right side,  and my eye specialist she said that I can put more in but it won't make a difference, because it's how disabilities affect your daily life. And mobility which I don't have any as I can't walk, so it's just sitting back and waiting now to see if need a assessment,
