Hi, I've been in reciept of pip recently due to bipolar disorder. This stopped on 29th July 2016. Since then, I have had mandatory reconsideration which I was told it was still disallowed. A main reason being 'at the time of the assessment i wasn't on any medication, therefore- there was no medication or therapy to manage or control.' This however is lies. At the time of my assessment I was prescribed sertraline 100mg however I had began to loose control and stopped being compliant with my medication at present I have home based treatment coming out now. I had an appointment with my psychiatrist and was put back on to Risperdone 1mg & diazepam 2mg x3 a day. (I sent evidence of this in to dwp) now. I'm on risperidone 1.5mg, zopiclone 7mg, diazepam 2mg x3 daily. I have sent my appeal letter to the tribunal and received a letter stating they'd forwarded it to dwp to begin my appeal.
Today, 24th October- I received a text 'We've received your request to look at our recent Personal Independence Payment decision again. You don't need to contact us as we're looking at this now. Thank you.'
So, I phoned dwp regarding this and was told 'sometimes new evidence comes to light, sometimes they want to recheck, sometimes they want to change their decision etc etc etc.' I was told to phone back at the end of the week as this was rushing due to me putting in for my appeal. I was wondering if anyone knows anything e.g if they've ever experienced this etc. Any help would be good help thanks in advance! X
