Apologies if this
question has been asked before... How much evidence should a person send?
My wife’s in the process of transferring from DLA to PIP. I read somewhere if you send to much evidence they don’t have time to read it and just call you in for an assessment. Elsewhere I’ve read, it’s good to keep a little evidence back in case you have to appeal.
My wife has advanced MS, is now bed bound and receiving palliative care for pain management. From home visits in the last 2 years we have 4 doctor’s letters and 3 nurse’s letters, do you think that is enough? I’m contemplating having a private Occupational Therapist visit, to complete an assessment and add to my wife’s evidence.
We also have a neurologist’s letter from 2017 that talks about the severity of her disability and that he doesn’t expect she will live more than a year (which she’s obviously exceeded) I’m worried if I use this letter, that if she gets a PIP award it would be relatively short, any thoughts?
Thank you in advance for your help.
