As this years budget was being read out in Parliament, I received a letter from the DWP saying my PIP had been stopped because I hadn’t sent in my renewal form! I had! When I called I got told I’d have to make a new claim and to expect to wait 6 weeks for it to be sorted out.
I called my benefits advisor who had helped me with the form and she called them. They told her that they did in fact have my form and it was a a complete error on their behalf. But it could still take a while to ‘fix’ the error. Cue letters regarding my ESA being stopped and my mobility car being recalled. I needing up at the Drs having had a panic attack! I have just had enough. I am scared and have no faith in the system.
