After submitting my 'evidence' for a reconsideration I was awarded PIP'S in March this year--both the mobility and the living components on the enhanced rates. Hasten to add I was already in receipt of ESA on the enhanced rates and in the support group.. again given after a reconsideration.
Now in August (five months after I was given the enhance PIP'S award that runs out in July 2015) I have received the dreaded 'brown envelope' from PIP'S asking me to complete yet another application of forty pages to 'made a decision on my award', or if I am entitled!
Its totally baffled me, needless to say and has caused a lot of stress, fustration and worry, that simply does not do my health conditions any favours(Fibro, Reynards, Osteoarthritis,IBS, Bladder problems, memory, concentration,plantar fascitis,the list is endless)
There just not seem any understanding from these powers that be (DWP), when you have got all the medical facts in black and white, its all been submitted, considered and you get an award given. They still want to pester you and cause you even more pain and misery, as though you already have not got enough to cope with.
Has anybody else had this experience with PIP's or indeed ESA, as I just think its a terrible waste of tax payers money, basically going over the same ground.....or is it just me?
Okay rant over, but I don't feel a whole lot better for it.
