A Horrible Experience On A DWP Home Visit For PIP Form Support

August 22, 2016

This was recently left as a comment on Fightback’s facebook page.

We had a horrible experience with some one from the DWP who came to my home to help fill in PIP form ,,,he was just awful ,,,called me a liar when i told he he was filling the forms in wrong ,,,when i said that you have to be able to do things reliably ,safely and in a timely manor ,,,he said that was not true ,,,he did not have a clue what he was doing ,,,crossed out that my son did not have a support worker ,when his support worker was sitting right next to him ,,,he really was awful ,,,in every section of the form he put a line through as not applicable ,even when my sons support worker said it was ,,,i think he managed to write about 3 line through out the whole PIP form ,and his writing was so bad ,you could not make out what he had put down ,,,i said to him ,you do know that this will fail my son ,,,he said yes ,but when he fails he can write a letter and send evidence ,,,unbelievable ,,,i have kept the form ,,,you really would not believe it if you saw it,,,i phoned to make a complaint ,the lady was very nice and said they need to know if they are having DWP workers going to peoples homes and doing this ,,,these are people that are supposed to help people fill these forms out because they are unable to do them ,themselves ,,i think the man that came here was from connect first ,,,it is terrifying to think that he is still going this job as he did not have a clue how to fill the forms in and treated people like they were fools ,,,he talked over you ,,,and only asked my son part of each question ,and he also decided what questions to ask him ,,,when he was here he had a phone call from a man in tears ,saying he had lost his award after this chap had filled in his form ,,,i said no wonder and asked him to leave ,,,in all my life i have never meet any one so inaproprate for the job that they are doing ,,,it brakes my heart to think that people phone for help and support and believing that is what they will get and they end up with people like him ,,,if they were on their own with him and very unwell like my son with a mental health illness they would not stand a chance.
