Husband's PIP was stopped after review as "his condition doesn’t warrant PIP anymore". Anyone else?
Hello. I’ve just joined Scope,I have a rare disease called HEDS and in receipt of PIP, so I’m not unlucky regarding my benefits. However my husband is also disabled with a mental illness,this being Rapid Cycling Bipolar and been on medication for several years and working well at the moment. He had a review assessment with DWP and a few weeks later they sent us a letter declining to renew his PIP based on as stated “his condition doesn’t warrant PIP anymore “. This has devastated him which has has an adverse affect to his well being. I forwarded a supporting letter to DWP clearly stating his battles daily. We are waiting for a decision on Mandatory Decision because we are appealing against the decision. Basically I am wishing to ask if anyone has had the same problem and how it was resolved etc.
Thank you in advance.
