So 6 months after having a face to face home visit assessment through CAPITA for PIP - I still await a decision. However, on Saturday I received a letter from ATOS requesting me to go to an assessment to do with ESA which I have been on in the support group for the last 18 months. I filled in their Medical assessment form way back in June, and this is the first I've heard back.
I just wonder if the decision for PIP will be based on what ATOS come up with re. ESA continuing??!!! I am very confused as to why I need 2 different assessments for 2 different things - will they base the PIP decision on what the extremely harsh ATOS report comes up with??
I am dreading it, as the last ATOS assessment I had, they deemed that I was fir to work (crazy!). I appealed and won, but dread the thought of having to go through this process all over again, struggling financially already on what little we get, and the prospect of them repeating the previous result, stopping my 'pay' without notice... etc. etc. This system is crazy and designed to create as much stress as possible to those in genuine need.
Anyone else going through a similar process? Views appreciated
