    That's a lot @jak55. Have they sorted your sanction now?? Are you getting any money?

    Have you given UC fit notes and have you had an assessment from them or just your PIP assessment?

    Hello there @jak55 and welcome to the community, thanks for sharing what's been happening with us, it does sound like you've been having a difficult time lately. I hope after you posted this morning you were able to get some sleep.

    I'm sorry to hear you had negative experiences with staff about your benefits, it can feel very frustrating when decisions aren't explained to us. It sounds like you're applying for PIP and LWCRA/LCW at the moment, can you tell me if that's right?

    You mention you won a mandatory reconsideration, can you tell me if that was for your UC or for your PIP?
    recived assesment date on monday my telefone day is middle next week
    If this is for PIP, is older daughter able to support you with this assessment?

    There's no need to apologise about how much you've written, and I know I've asked a lot of questions, so take as much time as you need to answer.

    We'd like to support you as much as we can, so keep an eye out for an email from a little later today.

    If you feel there's anything we can help with that we've missed, please let us know.
