TOPIC: PIP under investigation?

PIP under investigation? 3 weeks 47 minutes ago #197994

I have just been informed I'm under investigation because I didn't tell them I went away to France for 2 weeks then 3 weeks. I only found out when my money didn't go into my bank account today. I was under the impression that I only had to tell them if I went abroad for more than 4 weeks in one go? Also you could go away for 13 weeks in one year. I was informed that it's 13 weeks over 3 years? It would of been nice to be told I was under investigation and my money will stop. I have a mobility car so what happens to those monthly payments? Has anyone heard of this before because I cannot find any information on mobility or no PIP payments until they have finished the investigation! I'm in such a mess surely they should inform you before payments are stopped.

Have a look at the following Freedom of Information request about leaving the country with a PIP award,

www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/287477/re...508%20reply.pdf.html

It also contains a link to the DWP guidance on the subject.

From what I can see the DWP have acted disproportionally.

The following day after my post ta letter arrived saying I have PIP mobility and care indefinitely? The day after I was told I'm under investigation? So I'm still under investigation for going abroad in May without telling them my exact dates, but I couldn't remember them at the time when I was informing them of my August dates. They should read my disability memory loss is one of my long term conditions. Thank you for your notes from this post and an enormous thank you for your guides on reassessment.

I think it was my brother as he has been acting in the family in an inappropriate way towards my dad. Or a previous mamager from a volunteer group I belong to.
