Hello lovely people,
It's been a while since I have posted on this site, as always I have had some really good feedback and advice which when I moved areas and discovered this site I found invaluable, anyway to cut a long story short after a number of years on DLA payment I was due to be transferred from DLA to PIP when after a atos assessment I was told not only that I would no longer receive pip but I had 0 points on all sections in my assessment. Considering my condition had levelled out but not got any better in the time I was on DLA and I still could not work I couldn't believe that I was stopped the payment and everything I had said at the medical had not incurred even one point!
after I appealed and again atos stuck to their original statement and so I have taken the case further and now await a tribunal hearing where I live, at which myself and my carer, have to yet again put over our case this time in front of a judge. I have heard a few stories like mine and wondered if anyone here is sill struggling with a DLA/PIP case, at the end of the day we have an illness/condition that is serious and if health care professionals diagnose us with. This then help and sympathy should be given to us so that we can have a basic standard of living. Fighting on Sabine.
