TOPIC: Benefits during PIP Mandatory Reconsideration

Benefits during PIP Mandatory Reconsideration 11 months 2 weeks ago #196486

After invitation for PIP assessment I received no award for my daily living needs and mobility. I am now waiting for PIP Manadatory Reconsidiration. My DLA will stop, CA for my wife will stop, income support claimed by my wife based on my disability will stop and probably HB and CTB. We do not have any income.
What can I do now? What benefits we can claim? In case if is MR succesful what will be impact on previous benefits, are going to be restored?

If you are unable to work then you can apply for ESA, or If one of you can then JSA. If you are in a Universal Credit area then it will be UC rather than the above, but I would recommend that you get face to face advice before you claim UC as once you have then there is no way back to what are no called legacy benefits.

Your HB may stop due to the removal of the IS claim, but you can contact your Local Authority and make a nil income claim if necessary.

If the Decision is overturned, then it should be possible to reinstate your original benefits unless you have made a claim for UC. For UC you can receive similar but the process will be definite.
