Hi all, 

Just got my decision (first time claim) and as probably expected, I scored 0 points for everything and the report was full of lies like most on here...Why do they keep doing this to us. I have had a stroke and certainly matched up enough descriptors to allow for enhanced on both, but 0?!! I cant walk 50M without stopping - report said I can do 200m without issue (how exactly do they know that??), I can make budget decisions lol...yea right!!, I can prepare a meal....I nearly burnt the house down as the stroke has affected my memory so badly, that I forgot I had the gas on with food in the pan.....I could go on and on!! its a disgrace and this Government have a hell of a lot to answer for putting the likes of Capita and Atos in charge of our lives....So, now to start the MR process and probably fail that too...then have to wait a year to have a tribunal....pathetic joke of a system!!! sorry for the rant...more than a little upset and anxious now!!

    Hello loydyd, it the way the system goes they won’t, hope we, you me will accept the acessment result and not appeal or take the matter further. It’s not the DWP fault but the acessment companies who are employing poor quality staff to take the acessments who fail to read and understand the evidence and information presented, given to them at each and every acessmet . It’s good to rant, moan let of steam it clears the air, but you will still need to put in for a MR by phone and a written request with in the 30 day deadline giving several examples of how your conditions affect you in relation to each of the PIP descriptors.
