Welfare Rights / Re: PIP review pending...
« Last post by paradox on 15 Dec 2018 09:23AM »
KizzyKazaer Yes logically you would think its a review just to check if my condition has changed....reality is its a look to see if they can cut or stop my award. I would accept if this thing was honest and done to actually look at needs. We all know its purely to cut benefits and its a random game of who you get for an assessment and luck.
I should keep my award, but I cannot assume that. To give me what is basically a one year award in reality, from and indefinite DLA award and when I got high points on both mobility and daily living I think is a joke.
Its malicious and done with no care at all, just accountancy at work!

KizzyKazaer They are truly evil! Imagine sending that out in the Christmas period, taking a week of my 4 weeks to get it all done just to get it to me and effectively giving me about 10 days to get it done taking into account Royal Mail non posting days over Xmas and New year and of course the delays that happen this time of year too. If my form gets there late they stop my money but they take no account of anything. Seeing as its nearly a year until my award end, why not send it in the new year! There can only be bad reasons for it and that's to make it as hard as possible. I have to get this off before Xmas because I cannot risk it getting caught up during the holiday period. Its just not fair!

..an afterthought:  as you receive enhanced rate for both PIP components, I would have thought it unlikely you'd go from that to nothing!

So yes they do contact a year before the award is finished.

Sneaky barstewards.  Now I am also worried as my PIP award letter said 'we will contact you some time after January 2019' (my award ends proper in December 2019)...

Sorry you have to deal with this at the worst possible time of year for such things - I went through it all myself in the DLA-to-PIP transfer before Christmas two years ago, so I understand how maddening it is, can't they just leave us alone until nearer the actual end date?  >doh< 

And yes, it is a disgrace and seems to me like a thinly-veiled attempt by the DWP to try and find more people they can 'nil award' - saving money on the disability benefits bill again with no regard to the immense stress their practices subject us to  >erm<

Hi well its happened!
My PIP review has come through! 11 months and 3 weeks before my award is up and 11 months exactly since i was told of my award which was for 2 years but dated 4th December 2017 (I got the award through the post on 15th January 2018) So yes they do contact a year before the award is finished. So I am now for the second time in a year going through this process again. I got High rate mobility and high rate daily living last time when they transferred me over from DLA indefinite award. From that to this, its a disgrace and affecting my health badly.
So I got it today 14th December and I must have the form and suporting evidence in by the 4th January. Taking account Christmas and New year, it leaves me no time at all to get this all done. I have just had enough. This time last year I was doing a double PIP and ESA review at the same time...and now this!
