Re applying for your pip

Hi everyone

Firstly sorry about my spelling

Does anyone know if they were ever or have been turned down for reapplying for their pip as my one is due to expire soon,just wanted to know if there is anything to watch out for when re-applying again

Thanks very much

I will not bore you with details cos recently covered

I found this website though and under medical rights you can demand a copy of anything they have on you so ask.

Art...... I don't have PiP. I have DLA, on the one occasion I had to re apply for it I got all the relevant paperwork together and went to age concern and they helped fill in the application form, but of course if you are too young for Age concern then try the citizens advice people....

Good luck.

Don.

I was at a presentation about PIP ect (given by CAB) last weekend, the lady was saying for renewal look at your current award if you are happy or you are on enhanced then tick no change even though there is change since any change means a new claim which means they could admen your current award downwards, so if you are on enhanced you can get extra points but no more money so why run the risk?

I was originally awarded maximum care and maximum mobility two years ago (for three years) but following a review recently my care was cut to standard and mobility taken away altogether. I have started the Mandatory Reconsideration. I cannot see how, given that my symptoms and their effect on me have gotten worse, this happened. When my husband filled out the form we made sure that we described my deterioration over the past two years and asked at the assessment if the Assessor had seen the previous report, she said she had, and yet this is the result. It seems to us that saving money is all the government cares about.

Thanks Sharon for your reply, I was awarded stander daily allowance and stander mobility allowance for two years one year was back dated,my illness has not changed so no new information or doctors letters so I have nothing to prove things have changed so I am wondering what will happened .sorry your illness has got worse,I wish you all the best in getting everything back,be nice to hear your results if possible

Good luck fingers crossed
