Now I reapply and assessor walked away. I'm not stressed it was on Tuesday. But it has been on my mind since then.

What then they stopped it
Just because the benefit period ended. Then you are told to reapply and they treat you like they've never heard of you before. It gives them an opportunity to regularly try and strip you of your benefit.

I walked to the appointment with my carer. It took about 35 minutes. We were there early and I paced up and down like I do every day at home.

Then the assessor came out and scolded at me. Scowled at me and we went in the room. Then I sat. She showed me her I'd. I gave her mine.
She said you know why you're here. I said I know it's about my claim for pip. But I'm not sure why the dwp haven't already got enough information to make a decision about my claim. And why a face to face assessment was necessary.

The assessor then asked me if I wanted to be here. Before I could answer properly he showed me the door

When I didn't leave he started on about doing a mental health assessment. I asked him if he was a psychiatrist. No. Or a doctor. No. He said he had a medical background. I said your not qualified to do a mental health assessment.

He didn't like it. He said if I wanted further details regarding his qualifications I'd have to do it in writing. I said if you were qualified you'd tell me.

How do you go about claiming for pip, I ask because my contact at work is up in June and I’m back on benefits.

Just give them a call then they will send out the application form numbers on line somewhere

You can claim pip and work in theory.
