    Why is it always Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claims that are being investigated? What about people that are claiming Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)

    Hi I have had a face to face interview for pip it was because I was taken off DLA FOR LIFE but they didnt listen and everything I said it was twisted and lies its terrible these people dont know any of us and to take money off us they have.
    They dont even believe our drs and specialists they make you feel like a criminal.
    All the stress this has caused me to have Angina i have got a group called Disabillity Rights they are now dealing with my claim now and its going to tribunal because they took points off me and I lost my mobility car as well it distgusting the way we are tret by these people.
    I have also wrote to my MP and she had wrote to them and that letter has also been ignored buy them .

    My experience is, on my face to face assessment for my PIP, I got a very nice and qualified person, and I was successful with my claim for PIP.

    I had been receiving DLA for 14 years due to visual impairment. In addition I was being treated for anxiety and depression. I was invited to a face to face meeting which I found to be intrusive and humiliating particularly in front of my wife who attended with me.
    My claim for PIP was declined on the grounds that I could walk 200 metres without assistance which is true in low traffic, few pedestrian locations but not so in busy locations.
    Since my assessment my medication for anxiety and depression has tripled and I have good days and bad days. I don’t work anymore and don’t feel of any value to society. Basically I am waiting to die!

    I would advise anyone who submits anything to add an ‘RSVP to let me know you’ve received this email’.

    Please don’t underestimate JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group)
    ” … How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations …” or just plain manipulate or delete comms …

      PS. If your email correspondence to Ms Pidcock is received then you will receive an auto response, so no need for the ‘RSVP’.

    Claimed pip since 2013 after falling down the stairs breaking my l4/l5 needing back fusion, my first claim was ok. the second in 2015 the man was a complete arse hole, told me out right he was going to lie on my assessment we argued all through my assessment, him calling me a liar many times. As he was leaving I got up to see him out to which I feel to the floor, he left me there & my son had to come and help me up, the lies on my form I lost my mobility even after the complaint nothing was done. Assessment number 3 even though I was not due until july 2018 they are pulling people in a year early to do there re-assessment’s. They have a water fountain set up in the center obviously for those who need a drink to access, you get a drink instant fail, my assessment lasted over 2 hours of pointless question which service no relevance to your illness if you own a phone you are marked down, my pain was high through out & at 1 point I asked if I could lay on the bed which is in the room but was way to high to get on plus I needed it flat, the lady could not lower the bed. When I let the assessment center my friend more or less carried me back to the car I was also helped by the car park attendant due to been in so much pain, 3wks it took me to get to a level I can cope with this assessment nearly killed me. 4wks later letter from DWP marked down again due to lies on my assessment so again a complaint has gone in, we are watched from different camera’s on arriving to these assessment & every inch of are action are watched we are treated worse then any murder, pedo, thief, convict in prison, why because we claim a benefit the government says we are entitled to. We have to get x-amount of information to prove we have these ailments, doctor’s letters, home dairies Atos do nothing don’t even contact are doctors.. I was assessed by a lady who massages muscles for a living but yet qualified to asses me, Joke . The complaint never go any further then stage 1 we are just irrelevant & ignored. These growing pointless assessments need to stop more and more are won back through appeal in my eyes its just a points game & targets have to be reached, so money is been wasted in all corners of this mess. If the government hate the fact disabled people claim pip or esa then scrap it all together,put a bullet in are heads it would be easier then the crap we have to go through everyday.

    Hi yes I have been getting pip since last February they only gave me the standard rate but I didn’t appeal as that would make my mental health worse so I accepted what I was entitled to. I suffer from chronic pain and nerve damage in my arms and hands also anxiety and depression I’m on countless medication.. I was told that I might have my payment changed as a court hearing has over turned the mobilaty part on pip ..thanks Gav.
