Hi Ricko4,

I haven't got BPD (my issue is bipolar disorder) but I have claimed PIP. Believe me, 12 weeks is not a long time where benefits are concerned so it doesn't mean your claim has been unsuccessful.

Hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer before you hear from them. If the result is not favourable, ask for a mandatory reconsideration.

Hi, I received enhanced rate pip (daily living component) payments for BPD. I had to wait a year to get mine as there was ridiculous backlogs. I had CMHT help in applying and received it first time without having to appeal.

I was awarded for 3 years. Are you on ESA ? As they may be awarded quicker than pip. Or do you work?

Sorry I see that you do work. Pip requires that you do attend a 1-1 assessment except in extreme circumstances so you will be given an appointment to attend. You can take someone with you though preferably a mental health or support worker if you have one or just a friend.

It is worth having I receive £80 something a week and it does make a difference

Yes I got it first time with help from Welfare Rights team at local council. PIP may be different.

just got my face to face assesment appointment through 35 miles away at 8.45 am typical so ive been on a downer since the letter came as i said to them i dont want a face to face unless its at my home as im terrible going to new places anxiety takes over so i took the letter to my cmht today as i had my weekly appointment and told my care worker about it so she called them and explained my situation to them and said it would be detrimental to me if i attended so they asked her to send them my pshychiatrist report which she is doing tommorow so i dont know what will happen now

Let us know what happens. I'm dreading the reassessment from DLA (indefinite award) to PIP when it happens, ESA was bad enough and caused me to have a breakdown. Fingers crossed for you that you don't have to go in for a face to face, AND that you get awarded PIP.

Totally agree. They want to intimidate us to just give up, go away, die etc and the best thing to do if you can, is get an Advisor/Advocate (CAB, MIND, thru yr MH team?? or whoever is left with any funding these days) and Appeal any wrong decision. They hate that and loads of people win eventually as it's in a proper court of law (yeah, I know they're not always as clean & honest as they should be :p ) as opposed to corrupt dodgy pretend medical professional private target-driven 'shower of shites' that Atos/Maximus/Capita etc are . Keep fighting! Benefitsandwork website brill too for how to fill forms in, face to face and appeals etc but I know I still personally can't cope with any of it on my own. Thanks for making me laugh with the 'shower of shites' lol

went to the cmht yesterday and the lass i see told me she was sending all my relevent history to them i had to sign a c onsent form to allow it then she said euther of 3 things will happen they will either send out another appointment or give me a phone assesment or i will get a letter to say ive been awarded heres hopeing lol but now ive got the cmht involved i feel better about the outcome but if the outcome aint favourable then i will appeal but in all honesty dwp/atos/capita can go fuck themselves because i will get it in the end because i really do need it im only on assesment rate esa the useless fuckers cant even sort that out oh well thats my rant over lol
