Should I Be Forthright
The last time I asked for some advice on this forum re PIP. I received some spiteful comments. I hope this won't happen this time!
My official date of PIP renewal was last November. But because of Covid it was extended to January 022.
I am presuming DWP will ask me around October/November reapply for the benefit.
I have over lockdown one, to the present, been making notes on what the difficulties are with my disability. Once I am asked by DWP for reapplication it should be fairly easy as I have already done the leg work.
On my present award I did not get full PIP for mobility. I was one point off this full award.
The assessor (Capita) lied about several points on my abilities. I have been denied hundreds/thousands of benefit.
I am extremely bitter!
Over the years I have learnt to bite my tongue to the extent a bit too much. This holding back. Makes me frustrated/anxious I need to have my say...
I have prepared a introduction to my PIP notes.
** Before I go any further can I explain I don't fill in the form they send. I write an essay on my diificulties/problems **
Back to me speaking my mind. I have already
said what I need to say with my present award. The manner of the assessor that came to my house. Calling me in print a liar (All Lies)
I will threaten them with the sentence saying
If I do not get this time the full award I will go through MR and if need be go to tribunal.
I am not going to allow DWP/Capita to make me go through hardship again.
I will also say what I need about the assessor.
Short changing me with her lies/corruption
Do you think me being frank with them will affect my new application?
I also have compared my disability with a certain neighbour who get full award.
I know this because of Motability car
They have built three professional quality sheds. Laying roofing felt. Working on this roof on his knees. Walking on this roof with no problems. Back to terra firma. He's hobbling. Walking with a limp.
I am possibly a good twenty years younger than this neighbour and even if I had the ability to lift wood, climb onto a roof. It would kill me! But nothing seems to affect him.
I do not trust DWP or Capita!
Me speaking my mind, do you think this may hinder any application?
Thank you folks
