HI THERE- I AM IN A POSITION WITH MY PIP AND REALLY NEED HELP. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO COPE WITH PTSD AND I HAVE JUST NOTICED THAT MY PIP AWARD IS OVER 20 POINTS SHORT AND THE APEAL ANSWER IS A JOKE. I DON'T WANT TO ROCK THE BOAT WITH THEM BUT I CAN'T HAVE SOMEONE ASSESS ME IN MY HOME AND NOT BE QUALIFIED. I HAVE N.E.S.D AND 16 OTHER CONDITIONS. I SHOULD BE ON THE TOP RATE DAILY BUT I SCORED JUST 8 POINTS.
ANY ADVICE

    Hi @87878amy and welcome to our online community.

    I am sure we can help you with your PIP.  When you say you have N.E.S.D, do you mean N.E.A.D as in non-epileptic attack disorder?

    I've moved your post to our PIP, DLA and AA board and I' sure our members will be along with more specific advice soon  :)

    HI and welcome,

    I'm finding it very difficult to read your post because of the use of capital letters, if you can use lower case letters please then it will help. Using capital letters is classed as shouting.

    You mention appeal, have you been awarded by a Tribunal recently or was the decision made by DWP, if it was DWP when was the decision made on your claim?

    I'm sorry to hear you've been struggling with PIP. Have you had a chance to think about what Poppy's asked?
