P.i.p form

Hi everyone

i was filling in my claim form for the p.i.p in my usuall couldnt care less rude manner when my wife took it from me.

She told me i had missed lots out as i was so wound up by the stupid questions and she would do it properly for me.

When she had finished i read it all through and ime now more worried about being sectioned under the mental health act than i am about my breathing!

Have a very merry christmas and a happy new year (or as best we can)

Bob

Always best to put the worst case senario. As your wife sees you every day I am sure she knows best!!! good luck Irene x

I went on the DWP benefit adviser question answer form and it said I should look at DLA/PIP Carer and Mobility. to go with my ESA support I already get. I hate doing forms at he best of times and it is all in the way you put things down. I am sure I am on the eeny meeny minney NO pile when I send anything back since I go my MP involved.

Typical man, hate fitting in forms lol! Seriously, the more you write on the form no matter how trivial the better. I had mine filled in by my local cab and she wrote loads and loads.

C.A/B. and Age UK fill form for you. there was a book available and renewed every year from the university of Birmingham . I've just looked and cannot find it!

there's some advice here: adviceguide.org.uk/england/...

What they say there is that if you filled a previous form, you can copy this into the new form.

I have kept some form that I filled with my details to use them for future reference. Obviously, you have to update this.

Make a copy and put the date on it. If you phone the DWP, always make a note of when you did this and obtain the name of the person you talk to. I used to have a book specialised to record those phone calls, the date and what was said.

Hope this help a little.

councils have benefit advisers too, apparently.
