Checked my bank today to find my dla not been paid in. When I rang I was told they had sent me 3 letters to apply for PIP and I had ignored them, so they had stopped my money. After a lot of stress, tears and phone calls, it turns out they had sent them to my previous address, which they said was also my fault as I did not change my address when I moved. I said oh thats funny I have a letter here in front of me which came from you to this address. They refused to tell what address they had, I had to put in new claim for PIP, and send letter of complaint and proof of this letter to them. An hour later I got a phone call saying my DLA was being re-instated, no reasons why there had been a mistake and no apology. Now I still have to face PIP claim as DLA due to run out soon, but at least I will get DLA until then. So people be careful and keep all your paperwork you never know when DWP will mess up.
