Were now on Tuesday not heard anything..

Don't know what to do I no I'm entitled its just I like to know things its part of my mental health.

Any advice would be good.

Thank you xx

    Hi

    The only thing I think I know about severe disability premium is that you have to live alone with no non-dependants and nobody claiming carers allowance .

    Im like you I have to know so give them a ring and ask what is happening it can't harm because they take ages to send anything out. .

      Hi thanks for reply. There useless! They said thered text me when received it.. No text. They had till 8th august they received and scanned on 29th July so they said they have 6 working days. Rang up yesterday and they rang through to department they said there 'printing' it of give 10 working days I didn't ask what they was printing of and that's what really had confused me !

      I'll be fine once I know tho, DWP are useless at times!

      Printing off the assessor's report presumably? Or the award letter I guess, but if you'd been awarded, I think they would've said? Hope it gets to you quick, the waiting causes so much stress.

      I have my face to face on 18th and it's causing me a lot of anxiety ??

      Yes, I have Major Depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder and a Bulging Disc in my spine causing Sciatica. I hate that we have to jump through hoops, STS, to convince them you're ill ??

      Someone write a helpful post about pip myths and facts, I'm going to keep reading it. It's articulating my problems that I worry about. I can't face a tribunal if they don't award it.

      Thanks for your kind words and interest xx

    If you're entitled it will probably be paid on your next ESA payday.

      Yeah I thought that when they told me about my PIP award.   what if they mixed me up with someone else and it's not true.  

      But im sure they can't they ask too many security questions I'll just find something to worry about if I can.

      No I can't claim it because my son lives with me and will be claiming care allowance now I've got the PIP award and I'm not in the support group as yet I'm in WRAG and have been for 4 years they sent me another claim form in March

      just waiting to see what they are doing with my claim it's been 5 months now and have not heard anything about It
