    Why did they award you PIP in the first place if they are now reviewing it?

    They have not even got round to assessing everybody who is currently on DLA for PIP yet (including me) so how on earth have they got to this stage with you?!!!

    If you have to appeal I would advise you to get in touch with a local Welfare Rights Group who will be able to represent you.

    Many years ago I had my DLA taken from me . I appealed. A local welfare rights group represented me and I got it back for life.

    Local CAB should be able to put you in touch with a local Welfare Rights Group.

    Good luck with all this.

      I was awarded it in 2014. Has i had an operation on my foot as i hav clawed feet. I applied in 2013. I neva claimed any benefits before. This was the 1st time. They wanted to review my claim after 12mths. And refused it now.
