I was wondering if my you think my wife’s case will be looked at again as she as been ill for years with mental health she scored 4 points on the going out ! altogether it was eight they never asked anything regarding mental health , only with all the news about reforms I was wondering are they going to assess all claims or just some
Thank you


All PIP claims are going to be looked at again by the DWP due to the changes but with some 1.6m claims to be checked this is not going to be a quick fix.

Hi, Gorden, My wife mental health was completely dismissed on her claim even though she did have proof of illness and she was taking medication, Do you think people will be notified when there claims are looked at again
Thanks

I'm afraid we do not know, the DWP have released virtually no information about how they are going to approach to issue.
