If any of you will soon be having an assessment for PIP or ESA please ask for an audio recording.I forgot all about asking for one when i had mine for PIP and i got a very dishonest assessor.I was so shocked at all the lies she told.My fault really for trusting them.I was warned, but thought it wouldn’t happen to me.How wrong was i.
One of the things she said to me was 'I wont ask you to do any exercises.i can see how tired you are!! she had put on the report that i had REFUSED to do any exercise!!
If i had it recorded she would not have being able to put that.I am annoyed with myself more than anything for trusting them in the first place.There are too many lies on it to tell you them all.I would be on here all day if i told you them all.
I rang the DWP when i got the report and told them all this too, i wasn’t going to keep quiet about it.I told them in a very calm way(even though i felt like calling her a lying so and so) and the lady at DWP was really nice about it.I don’t think for a minute it will have done any good telling them though.
I have just joined a few PIP/ESA forums and the people that are loosing there PIP and ESA is really unbelievable.There are some very ill people that loose all there money,i feel so sorry for them.I have told my partner that i am not prepared to put myself through another assessment and next time they treat me badly i am going to tell them to stick there benefits where the sun doesn’t shine.I will be a hell of a lot worse off but if i had to i can sell my house and live off the money i make on the sale.Anything rather than have to deal with this corrupt system that’s in place.I just wish my state pension was a bit nearer but i have 5 years to go until then.
