Hi everyone. I’m going for an assessment for PIP tomorrow. I’m not looking forward to it. Just wondered if anyone’s been for one and if anyone could give me any tips on what to expect. I doubt if I’ll get it because I’m mobile and if you meet me for a short period of time you’d think I didn’t really have any problems. It’s only when you’re with me all the time that you see the support I need and the things I can’t do or struggle with. I didn’t really want to have to claim it but I’ve been off sick from work 6 months now and my financial situation is not good. I need to go back to work soon, even though I’m not totally ready but I can’t go on like this much longer. It really annoys me. I’ve worked all my life. Never been on benefits. I’ve had to be off sick for a totally legitimate reason and I have the stress and pressure of being abke( or unable) to support myself and my children anymore.
Any information on PIP Assessments would be greatly appreciated. Gina x
