PIP and ESA government enquiry

Just in case not everyone has seen it here is the link to the government website to submit comments for the enquiry re PIP and ESA. I would encourage as many as possible to give feedback. This may be our opportunity to finally get some changes to make it fairer. Submissions needed by Nov 10th.

I am intentionally leaving this post open to catch as many people as possible.

I must be onist I don't find it unfair all I done was told the truth on my forms and the same at the interview It's know Good applying for pip if you haven't been diegnosed or haven't got the medical back up in writing When I attended pain clinic they was all complaining But I was the only one that had been diegnosed with four illnesses

I think you were fortunate as this is not many peoples experience. If your disability is obvious it’s not so bad but it is those whose disability is more invisible that is more difficult. Also it depends on the assessor. Some are fairer than others. We had lots of medical evidence but because it made no difference at all.
