Turned down for PIPS
I received my letter confirming they would not be paying me pips. I rang them immediately and asked for a M R. I did it over the phone, dont know if I did the right thing there though. The assessor lied about things. She said I can plan a route and travel by myself. I dont drive, nor do I have a car. I told the woman this but she completely ignored this. She reckoned I can walk 200 metres without getting breathless, (based on what? a 2 minute walk from a taxi to the medical centre) I live down a long road and there are bus stops at each end but both are more than the 200 metres she claimed I could walk, so how does that work? Even if I cold walk that far, I stll have more walking to do whn I get offthe bus, and how do i manage my shopping????? Total farce I have heard in some instances you can still get DLA whilst you are waiting for the appeal results, is this true and how would I go about it. Irealy need this money for taxis etc, so its veri important to me. If I canr get out, I cant buy food, so what do they want me to do, sit and die???
