What is ATOS and the DWP doing?
Can anyone help me with this? I have been getting PIP since it came in but after a 'Renewal' at disgracefully got '0' points across the board. I'm not going into details about my conditions but suffice to say I'm currently under two specialist for long-term care. The ATOS assessment was so bad that the DWP have sent it back to them to re-write and re-assess it. Has this happened to anyone else? I've had to cancel all my therapy due to having to travel up to 40 miles on public transport to get to the centre. If the DWP is admitting that my assessment was so bad why haven't they put my PIP award back in payment until ATOS re-assess me? Or is it just a ploy to give them more time to clear up their mess? I used to be a Housing Benefits assessor so I know all the tricks to get more time to assess claims
