I get the full monty in Disability allowance
The high end of Mobility and the Living Allowance, it comes to 450 a month and really helps me to get by.
I struggle with emphesyma and in particular energy absorbing tasks like walking lol.
Ive just received a big brown envelope from the DWP about my PIP in their words " Making sure your award is right" or in other words " Can we disqualify you from receiving it "
You have to tick details on how it affects you in one of three boxes "Better, worse or the same"
And then describe how the illness has progressed and affected me, you have all probably filled in similar forms and are conscious that the slightest error or admission on your part soon leads to the absence of the monthly payment winging its way to your bank.
Well everybody knows that this illness has no cure, it is a progressive illness, so why on earth do they ask these follow up questions.
They probably know that I am now 70 and maybe they want to blame my illnesses in most part on my age.
Im thinking of maybe just ticking all the boxes "the same" with the reasoning that as Emphesyma cant get better and as Im already diagnosed by the DWP as qualified for high end support, they cant now take it away from me. Or can they change their minds now after years of getting it?
Answers on the back of a DWP brown envelope please.John
