My son received letter from DWP PIP at the end of July informing him that his DLA was ending and he should decide whether he wants to apply for PIP. My son has learning disability and autistic traits and has problems explaining matters and does not like to speak on the phone. I made his claim for PIP on 1st August, my son had to agree to this. They asked me if I wanted to become his appointee. I agreed, but I am also an appointee for my eldest son. They said there would be no problem and they would send an appointee form out. To keep this short I have rang the PIP Enquiry line on 4 separate occasions as I have not received the appointee form to fill in. They have told me that a form was sent on 10th August, second form on 24th August and just on Monday 5th September the PIP Enquiry Line got someone to ring me back. Someone did but I do not know where they were from, but the PIP Enquiry Line number was on my phone. He promised me they would send the Appointee form out first class and I should have it within 2 - 3 days. I asked him to check he address out. He said it was right address and told me that once they get the form back I would get a visit from someone at my house. Still no sight of the appointee form and I also have not received the long PIP2 form to fill in. Has anyone any suggestions which office I can ring or write a letter to complain to because we are not moving forward very quickly and I do not want them to stop paying my son's DLA because of this. I live in the Tyne and Wear area.
