Early PMV

Hello All

It's been a while since I've been on UKFM as things have been going okish.

My PIP was awarded till 2021 ( 6 years). I got a letter this morning saying I'm getting a Performance Measurement Visit. I've no idea why and no idea why 2 years early. Any info would be much appreciated.

When are they going to realise that Fibro is for life.

Thanks all

esa support group and new UC claim

Hi moving home triggered my claim for UC and my ESA Support group claim closed. I was told, and it states clearly on dwp website, that even though its not a natural migration, I would keep my support group status carried over into the new UC claim. They really tried it on with me at the JC, I was ill after the long distance move anywhere, stressed and in pain, and anxiety up to ...

A few months back I was advised to claim pip, I took a few weeks and decided to give it a try, not really hopeful. So many stories from people being treated so badly I then changed my mind, I didn't return the pip form. It was stated on the letter that it had to be back by a certain date, so I just didn't return the form. No energy or will to tackle it ...

Forum newbie

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum, only found it after having fibro for nearly 2 years. I've struggled through it up till this point but at the grand old age of 24, I've finally had enough. I've been scared, frankly, to apply for PIP due to the horror stories I've heard about assessments. I'm having to give up full time work and go to 17.5 hours due to more frequent, and more painful flare-ups. ...
