3 weeks ago i had been in a care home for 28 days now 3 weeks ago on tuesday i came back home and i rang up pip and they said my claim was being investigated so i rang up the following week they told me its been sorted they've got the relevant paperwork last week i rang up they said it was still being investigated i also got one of my payments that i was owed because June's got recalled due to me going into a care home and because im back home when it came to july they never paid me. i rang up today they tell me my claim is suspended and all they can say is theyve made a referall to dwp to see if im capable but yet capable of what im confused on and i need my money to get around with and im in a wheelchair so without it im stuck in the house

    HI,

    I'm sorry to hear this. I'm afraid only DWP will be able to tell you why they've suspended you payments. PIP is DWP and they wouldn't make a referral to theirself. Do you mean they've referred your claim to a decision maker?

    Very difficult to give any advice here without knowing all of circumstances. My advice is to speak to your local CAB or other advice centre and you'll be able to tell them everything and they will assist you.

    Welcome to the community @tarahull89. Sorry to hear this has happened. If CAB's not an option for you, you can probably find some local help at advicelocal which I know Poppy frequently recommends.

    I get pip every month now.It got stopped or was reduced some time ago when teresa may had it stopped and then because of a row between the disabled clayments and Ian Duncan Smith, the then minister for the DWP. He resigned over it, then teresa may reinstalled pip and said that those who were getting pip and got it stopped or reduced would get it all backdated. I'm wondering where my back dated money is? 🤔
