DWP 'denying benefits' to people with schizophrenia and mental illness

It took me 3 attempts and 8 years to successfully claim DLA. I had to take breaks in between the claims because of the stress it caused. 3 time round I got support with the claim.

I wonder if this is a stand alone story or if it’s common practice to deny benefits to those with sz.

From what I have experienced as well as others here it’s a very corrupt system

I was denied. I had to go to court. I won in court.

Yes this is not uncommon. I was denied 4 times despite my sz diagnosis.

I never had a problem claiming in 21 years but have aways lived within care with a lot of support.
