Thread: PIP Migration - wife

  1. #11
    So yeah, everyone knows that it’s not a fair assessment, and with vulnerable people that can definitely make it a ‘dreaded’ event.
    Of all the PIP cases I know about local to me, DLA 'Migrations' & new claims about a dozen or so, all have been successful including two MH claims and they've all been satisfied with their awards.

    I'm in a Capita area, the two MH cases had to attend an assessment centre all the others were assessed at home, I'm assuming the assessments at the centre were because they seen specialist MH assessors there.

    With all due respect, I would rather prepare my wife for the worst, rather than relying on a financially motivated company.

    I think that when people come here it's all the "bad" stories or whatever they see. The people who go and get a fair or good or however you want to call it award don't come here or ask questions. They just get their award and life goes on. People who are hard done to have to come here to get advice. It's daunting as hell! The guys here give great advice and kind words too sometimes.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again "THANK YOU" to all who help the rest of us. You've no idea how helpful you are sometimes! People would be in trouble big time if it wasn't for you guys. You all know who I mean,too many to name and I'd be scared I missed someone. It would be unfair to miss one or two out cause I'm thick! Lol

    I had to go down the tribunal route for PIP but went well on ESA. For me it was worse than brutal on one but easy on another. Everyone has a different trip with the DWP but coming here will make it easier for sure.

    Hi guys. Since we sent my wife’s migration pack back, she’s been receiving calls from an unknown number, unfortunately it’s not happened whilst I’ve been with her as I would have answered, could this be the DWP?

    It does say in her claim pack that she doesn’t answer calls from people she doesn’t know...

    It could well be the DWP, or one of the assessment providers, who are ringing to ask something or clarify something.
    (Or even just to test that she doesn't answer the phone? I wouldn't put it past them these days).

    Don't worry, if it's important they will send a letter.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    That’s what I assumed, nearly 2 weeks later no post yet. I’ll answer if I’m around when they call

    Small update:

    Spoken to GP who confirmed the DWP (or someone in their behalf I suspect) have spoken to them, asking for confirmation of agoraphobia and her personality disorder.

    I assume this means that her claim is with the AP now?

    Update:

    Letter came with assessment at a consultation centre. I called AIS, to be told the practitioner who looked over my wife’s file had spoken on the phone to the GP and had said “no evidence of agoraphobia and attends surgery”.


    Head blown here. Who’s lying? I have already warned IAS that if they’re lying I will come down on them like a ton of bricks. I told the GP surgery the same. Waiting for a call back from them and IAS have put her file on review and assessment on hold till we sort it out.

    Any advice anyone?

    Are you concerned because your wife requires a home visit or because the GP 'appears' to be denying your wife has agoraphobia and/or attends the surgery.

    Do you have medical evidence (and did you send it) of your wife's agoraphobia/personality disorder?

    The only thing I can suggest is that you get a letter from your doctor detailing your wife's disabilities to use, either for a home visit or for evidence.

    Both really, I refuse to pay for a letter detailing why she requires a home visit when they’ve already spoken to the GP, and all the evidence I sent in was from the GP surgeries records anyway (lots of detail). There is absolutely zero way anyone who has read her medical notes would think she could possibly attend.

    It’s hard on her, it took so long for the NHS staff to accept that she had something other than ‘depression’, and now it feels to her like everyone is trying to say there’s nothing wrong with her.
