Hi and feedback on benefits
I've just joined this site today, because my sister has been convinced by someone at the CAB, she can receive the PIP benefit with her arthritis.
I have been reading what others has said and their experiences trying to claim PIP, with far more severe versions of arthritis and been turned down.
She called me to know how to fill out the form.
I tried to claim PIP last year with a form of arthritis as well as having breast cancer and SLE.
My application was rejected but I couldn't really argue with the decision.
I could do all the points that was listed and therefore scored 0.
So I am a bit confused how some people can receive PIP with arthritis alone and others are refused, along with other conditions under the 'PIP consideration '
I thought I would start my hello message with some information and feedback from the community on this.
Thanks in advance ☺️
