I had the same letter
and it also said that I could still be reviewed at any time
even though I'm awarded it for 10 months

also added that they might have sent
a how your disability affects you form
and that you dont have to fill it in

well what if the form arrives after this letter then ?
I will have to ask my OT to contact them
and is v difficult to get hold of him at the moment

so its not entirely joyful news

well i wasnt sure either but my support worker said i should get it for ten months and than be reviewed after that
i hate them forms there about an inch thick and you basically write virtually the same thing every time and than still have to maybe appeal x

funny since I started talking about them
I seem to be getting suddenly harrassed

I hope my support workers or ex support workers
are not reading my posts
because they are not allowed to do that by law

and how would you get help filling in the form
with social distancing going on ?

ive got a copy of my previous form
I dont think you can just parrot it though
also my walking has got alot worse with the arthritis
since I last did it

we spent 4 hours filling in the form
and then she ran out of time,
so someone else helped me finish the mobility part
which is one reason I lost the mobility component

Trumps Social Security sent out new forms this year with the idea in mind to get people off of Social Security Disability. I’m nervous because a lot of their judgements seem like they could be very subjective and I have been on disability for ten years.

well i wouldnt copy it word for word just to give you an idea if youve improved or gotten worse
you could always appeal i did but if the stress is too much its probably not a good idea
im not keen on the way trump works but i live in england
we have boris johnson x
