That's an almost unbelievable range. Still, it's done now.  :)

They are taking my DLA off me. They have scored me zero points. The fact that I work is counted against me. Now my council tax has gone up despite my income being halved.
now hand over the tea bags and we won't have any trouble.... :police:

I'm sorry they did that, you do need PIP. PIP is not an out of work benefit, it's to help you with extra costs whether you're in work or not. You really need to get the CAB involved, they've helped me lots with my PIP appeal. Your first step will be a 'mandatory reconsideration' but don't be disheartened if they still refuse because it's very common. I'd ask for a copy of the medical report from your assessment so that you can see where they've lied. I know for me they often gave me points for 'prompting' but what I actually need is social support and they've used my not having specialist input from MH against me, y'know, because it's not because the NHS are crap... I wouldn't have known this if I didn't see the medical report so try and get a copy ASAP. I think that you'll have about a month to complete the MRC and when that's done it's best if you prepare for an appeal straightaway, they delayed sending me the letter and I only had about 10 days to sort an appeal out. The CAB see a lot of PIP MRC"s and appeals so the sooner you book the better your chance of getting an appt.

The system is so unfair, especially regarding MH probs/autism etc I.e, the 'invisible problems'. I'm so angry with them.

They are really annoying. They used the fact I have mental health support against me.

Yet they used the fact that I have 'no specialist mental health input' against me! The thing is PIP is supposed to pay for help whether you actually get said help or not. They'll use any excuse against you so make sure you fight for what you need and deserve.  :hug1:

Have you got any help with  the MRC or budgeting yet?  :hug2:
