I recently filled and sent in a PIP claim form (change over from DLA to PIP). I phoned to see if they had received it on Friday (sent in on the Tuesday) and they said not yet. She assured me if they don't receive it by the due date on 3rd Dec, they will issue me with another claim form and "reset the timer" because I had been in touch with them about it. So far so good.
But, today I received a letter from ESA saying exactly the same as the letter I got from them last year, that I was placed in the support group from 22nd Jan 2016 to 1 Dec 2016, the only difference being the date when the letter was written. The latest one was dated 22nd November.
Now I have read that PIP and ESA work together, this can only be a bad sign. I'm thinking they've read my claim form and some idiot has decided that I'm not getting anything any more so my ESA will end on 1 Dec. God knows what I'm going to do because I know my doctor won't sign me back on for work - he knows I can't work.
It's Saturday today so I can't phone them until Monday. I'll report back then.
Meanwhile, has anybody had anything like this before?
