Is anyone in the UK getting PIP benefit?


#1

Did you find it difficult to get? What rate do you get?


#2

not yet. it hasn’t been mentioned yet to me so still on d.l.a right now. i am very nervous about how the change and new interveiw will affect me and what it will mean financially. have you been contacted yet?


#3

I’m on DLA aswell. I’m expecting them to contact me in the end of 2015.


#4

fingers crossed eh…


#5

I’ve resigned myself to failing to get it when the time comes. It’s badly geared to those with mental health problems. I will have to eat a lot of budget supermarket food . Call me the noodle king!

It shows how much they hate the physically disabled/mentally ill that they are making it harder to have a decent amount to live on. A civilised country would provide reasonable benefits for the physically disabled/mentally ill without pot luck over claiming PIP.

You would think we caused the financial crash and not the bankers.
