Just heard I have failed my reconsideration for PIP and the decision stays exactly the same. To be honest I am absolutely gutted because I am struggling so much with my bipolar.

Is there anyone I can turn to for help with claiming PIP?

Are you considering an appeal? If not perhaps you could start a new claim.

The best help I have found with ESA, and they also do DLA and PIP, is the Benefits and Work website. They have guides to filling in the application forms, what kind of information to give on the forms that will give you the best chance, etc and I think they help with appeals as well. It costs about £20 a year to join, once a member you can access a lot of information and download their guides. I think it is worth the money.

However there are a lot of other sites, especially charities concerned with particular conditions, that also give information and don't charge, but you have to do a lot of research. Benefits and Work always have the latest information, and I have found them very helpful.

Alternatively you could ask your local Citizens Advice if there are any organisations that have benefits advisers locally. Some are very good, some are not. If you are with a mental health team, some have benefits advisers.

Thanks Sarah, I did join and pay. But, I really didn't feel comfortable so never went back.
