TOPIC: Your Disability Living Allowance is Ending

Your Disability Living Allowance is Ending 4 months 1 week ago #194519

Dear Gordon,
Thank you for your very prompt reply,
I am deaf in only one ear, my other seems fine, for now.
I should have explained better that I have OCD and Chronic Anxiety, since 1991.
Most of the time I can only describe my illnesses as fighting one and other !
E.g, I need motivation to get up, but then when I can, the OCD takes over leaving me exhausted because of the symptoms, counting, checking and rituals etc.

Thank you for your advice.

You don't need to repeat your posts, all posts have to be approved before they will appear in the forum.

All you can do is make your arguments. Try and explain the physical and mental affects that your conditions have on you when trying to complete the PIP activities.

I do apologise Gordon, I didn't realise I had repeated myself twice, I am so sorry.

It's not a problem I just wanted to make sure that you knew that posts do not appear in the forum until approved by a Moderator and we are only on at certain times of the day.

Dear Moderators,
Update,
I have been through the telephone call to initiate the PIP transfer from DLA.
(I didn't want it hanging over me, making me worse)
I had all my info to hand as advised, so there was nothing asked unexpected.
I was told to expect the PIP2 questionnaire within two weeks and I would have 28 days to return it.
I was then told that I would have to attend a face to face assessment, bizarre to say that they haven't had the PIP2 returned to them yet !
I just thought that posting would give other members ideas of timescales the process takes.
Oh, and I recorded the call.
Thanks.

Hello Moderators,

Could I ask you please, does evidence that you send to the DWP with regards to PIP2 have to be medical evidence, or would it be OK to send non medical evidence to support your claim ?
Thanks.
