TOPIC: PIP Stopped

PIP Stopped 2 months 1 week ago #227644

I’ve never been on a forum before so not sure how this works.
I had my PIP stopped the beginning of February and was distraught, I joined so I could use the guides to ask for a Mandatory Appeal which ended up being 5 sides of A4 paper, I wish I’d joined before when had to fill out the form and maybe wouldn’t be in this situation.
I also went to my MP who has also contacted DWP to make sure they are looking at it, but will be at least 6 weeks before I have a decision which I don’t understand as only took 6 days after assessment for a decision to stop PIP.
Is there anything thing else I can do or is it just a waiting game now?

I'm afraid there has been a significant and increasing delay in the PIP Decision process, members have been reporting waits of ten weeks or longer. You can try contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim, the result may have been posted, it can take 7-10 days for a Decision Letter to arrive.
