@xander , get yourself down the Citizen’s Advice Bureau. They have specialists who know what you can and can’t get. They’ll be able to give you some guidance on what to do next. 😉

Oh @xander that sounds awful, what a lot of stress you are having to deal with 🙁 I was just thinking that PIP isn’t based on what there is coming into your house money wise but financial support for you to help with your disability and one of the criteria is that you have had your disease for more than 3 months and you will have it for more than 9 months in the future and as MS is a “Critical” disease Ie: no cure then you may be able to pursue that route rather than employment support (??) if they are giving you no joy.. CAB defiantly the place for advise on where to turn for support also try the MS society or MS UK as they also have people who know about the law who could also help give you advise .. Best of luck and let us know what you find out *Note that getting PIP is easy and the waiting times are ridiculous but if you are entitled it maybe a small light at the end of a tunnel

I get lower rate mobility for pip but have asked for a reassessment but got a letter saying that it will take more than 26 weeks to be assessed again

@xander , I suppose 26 weeks sounds better than saying 6 months!

Get your local MP involved if anything takes too long and you and your family start to suffer.
