TOPIC: DLA to PIP Im sick of the whole process.

DLA to PIP Im sick of the whole process. 5 days 17 hours ago #246352

Hi

Are there any figures produced with regards to people going from DLA to PIP?

By that, I mean:
how many people apply to move from DLA to PIP
How many claimants do not transition
how many have their DLA reduced once moved to PIP
How many people request an MR
How many decisions are amended on an MR request
Are DM's monitored, for example, if a DM at the DWP as more MR request made against their decision are they retrained
The same question regarding accessors, are they monitored? Take me, the accessor I saw how many claimants have then written to the DWP once they read the accessors report to correct information recorded.
I have lots more :)I'm just interested in what's going on with PIP now it's affecting me. . I was saying to my partner what happens if I don't receive a higher rate of care for PIP? But receive a higher rate for mobility? They said just accept it. They're concerned that you could have a DM carrying out an MR who is annoyed or having a bad day and doesn't look favourably at your MR. I disagree and think you should apply. If your disabled/ill and need help why should you be made to feel stressed and like a scrounger?

It's now 7 weeks since I received a letter from the DWP saying they have all the info they require. I'm still awaiting a decision. My transfer from DLA to PIP started in August last year. Do the DWP and other have any idea how this affects many people. It's been stressful for myself, cause arguments indoors. I'm sure I am not alone. What about folk who have no one. They probably give up with the claim.

Hi ukLee

The questions you want answers for are better being asked under a freedom of information request. We don't have access to that sort of information.

Sorry that you haven't heard yet. It is difficult to tell in the current climate when you might hear.

A google search will turn up most of the info you want as others have already made FOI requests for it.

I havent done a huge search but turned this up very easily
