Waiting For A PIP Assessment? BEWARE

September 16, 2014

Jayne Linney has just shared her personal experience on Facebook:


I’ve literally just had a phone call from a woman telling me she is coming to assess me at home today at 2.30pm – WITHOUT Capita sending a Letter.

I refused and its been arranged for October but…as Capita letters take 2 weeks + to arrive – WATCH OUT

    Hi, can they force someone on ESA in the WRAG group to start own business or look for work? they are trying to force my son into starting a photography business which hes already tried before and failed due to his fibromyalgia problems. this time hes to 1. come up with a business plan 2. think of a name for it 3. apply for a loan which he has no way of paying back cover for equipment. the camera he has is fine for normal use but not for taking professional shots.he lives in a 1 bedroomed first floor flat. his daughter lives with him,also not working, and no real space for taking photographs of people looking for bungalow so he can get out more. at the moment if he has a flare up he cant even get down the stairs. can they actually force him to do this? or look for jobs? hes never gonna get any better unless they find a cure for it.

      Hi, with your permission, I’d like to put this in a post of it’s own so that I can share it and hopefully get you an answer. Is that possible?

        yes please do. they have told him he has to have applied for this loan by time he has his next interview. of course the pressure now means he cant even think straight.ive tried helping him come up with a suitable name but its impossible.theyve told him if he doesnt do this then they will force him to look for work.

    the only benefit i now of if working would be dla dont now about pip but esa wrag or esa support group if its affecting his mental health then hes surely not fit for work and going back to the doctor asking them or telling them how its affecting his mental health asking if they would support him on 29 and 35 descriptors if its possible

    it looks like he has no comeback… been reading that in some areas even those in support group are now being called in for back to work interviews.thing is, like a lot of people, he would love to be able to work.but with his condition he has very good days, very bad ones and most are in between the two,with Fibromyalgia they don’t have the energy for one thing, and because of Fibro fog they cant get their heads around things like running their own business. as most folk know, especially in this day and age, you have to be up there, wits about you to keep an established business going, let alone start a new one. too many are now being pushed into self employment whether they are capable of it or not.
