PIP report suggests 0 points in some areas. What should I do next? I'm already struggling with money
Hi, I just received my report back from my pip review, I have mental health problems and scored no points on how it affects me, I am unable to go out alone due to panic attacks I also can't manage budgeting tasks without help but I received 0 points for this. I told the assessor I couldn't do these things but she's lied on the report saying I told her I had no problem going out. I never said this, and because I no longer have help from the mental health team and been referred back to my doctor's as I won't get better and mental health team can't help me the assessor now says I need no help so no points. So now will lose a lot of money which I already struggle with. I now feel even more depressed as don't know what I can do to get these points back as I don't agree with what the assessor said. Disgusting how they lie and then now they'll get away with it. Please could someone advise me what to do next. I've already taken DWP to tribunal twice and won and don't know if I can face it again also I have fibromyalgia so in a lot of pain. Sorry for the long post!!
