PIP REVIEW 1 month 1 week ago #252503

Hi, our daughter has only had her conditions 15 years or so and PIP some years. But she had exactly the same short recommendation as you recently. It was equally wrong about her as all the specialist clinics have signed her off with no further improvement options. I sent a letter politely challenging this [and other inventions that would also have reduced her points] as soon as I could [signed for of course] and the Decision has come back for over 3 years [and Enhanced both]. So it's been well worth challenging in her case. I carefully referenced each of the clinic documents already submitted, by number in my letter. Don't see why you shouldn't do likewise. Hope this encourages you and that you get justice. An experienced friend cynically suggests you have to suffer multiple short awards before 'they' give up hassling you and give a suitably long award for a situation that sadly won't improve.

Hello Denby,
Thank you very much for the information.
I am too mentally exhausted and struggling even more worrying to do anything at the moment.
I am going to wait for the DWP DM decision and hope that I get a longer award.
If not I will settle for what they award me as I cannot cope with it, but if it is a short award, when the renewal arrives in 12 months time I will just resend all the same information and explain to them why I have done so. In my case having 30 years of my conditions and having to go through this is terrible, adding to my health.
Thanks

My warm warm sympathies. Our daughter couldn't do it for herself; it makes me so cross 'they' appear to shamelessly trade on making people so much iller that without help, if they don't happen to have anyone to help, they are forced to settle for crumbs. And if I worked for the NHS I would be furious at the extra burden of needless ill health when the system is supposed to be supporting people with needs not making them worse.
Here's hoping sanity will break out in your case; even if it doesn't please let the forum know. Best wishes, Denby

Dear Moderators,

I have received a letter today , dated 3/11/20, saying "we now have the information we need to decide if we can award you PIP. We will write to you when we have made a decision."
I already have an award in place, this is regards the review form they sent me.

Any ideas on how much longer this is likely to be please ?

Thanks

PIP REVIEW 2 weeks 3 days ago #253312

Good afternoon,

I received a call today from my GP asking me to go in to surgery and look over a form they had been sent by IAS dated 13/10/20. It looks like IAS sent them this form as they tried to contact me on 13/10/20 as well.
I spoke to IAS on the 14/10/20 and they completed a report on the same day.
I already have a copy of the said report.

As you know from my previous post I have received a letter stating that they now have all the information they need to make a decision.

I want to know now will IAS do another report all over again or do you think that this is just a cross over sending for this request for further medical evidence form to my GP.

My GP has only told them what they already have from them anyway, they were kind enough to fill in your template evidence from GP and give me a supporting letter outlining my limitations with respect to the daily activities.

What do you think please ?
