I recently went for a PIP assessment and have received a letter being turned down for the new PIP benefit after being on DLA for a number of years due to being severely disabled after having meningitis as a baby which has left me with hydrocephalus and epileptic fits I honestly think it’s wrong the way that they make their decisions with who can claim this new benefit but me and my family plan to seek legal advice and take this matter further against the DWP.
