This forum is a great resource for everyone trying to understand the benefits system and how to make a genuine claim. Many members freely give their time and knowledge to help those that have nowhere else to turn, to point people in the right direction to get the assistance they need.
There are many things that are misunderstood within the benefits system,
Is it a medical assesment or an assesment of functionallity ?
What is the difference ?
How much evidence do you really need ?
Does the assesor need multiple degrees in all branches of medicine ?
Why does a diagnosis not guarantee a PIP award when DLA was for life ?

I am sure there are many more
I just wanted to say a big Thank you to all the champions and other members for a great job  :)

Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
