PIP, I need the form and I would advise you......

Postby Ribbonsrabbit » Fri Apr 25, 2014 6:10 am

I need a copy of the PIP form so if anybody can send me a link for an online form, just to read it, that would be super fantastic.
I have not read the rest of this thread so do not know what advice has been given but I am going to give this advice to all.
I worked in social services for 2 decades and for 10 years in a qualified social work post so I have a good working knowledge of legal documents.

I STRONGLY advise ALL PIP applicants to request a form to complete and to NOT COMPLETE THE APPLICATION VIA TELEPHONE INTERVIEW.

The reasons?
The PIP application is a LEGAL DOCUMENT.
If *at any point* you are questioned regarding the answers you gave over your cornflakes, chances of you remembering word for words are between slim and none.

When you are 'interviewed' over the phone, you, as a DISABLED PERSON LIABLE TO BRAIN FOG, might be liable to blurt out random rubbish because in terms of psychology and human behaviour (yeah I studied those to degree level as well) we want to conform and be accepted and to please. That is NOT the way to best apply for a benefit.

You need the time to consider your response to each question and also to get advice from the many charities and legal services out there.

You will be required to supply evidence. Collate all hospital reports and other professionals reports. Submit those that are relevant and be careful about what you submit. I, personally, recently reapplied for DLA and did not submit a certain surgeons report.... why? He advised me to be *more careful*. I prolapsed two discs in my spine sitting on the sofa and one of them exploded two weeks later sitting on the bed. I asked him how much more *careful* than sitting down he wanted me to be.

I cannot explain without using expletives exactly how helpful he was and what I thought of his advice to be more careful than sitting down..... Gosh but I so badly want to say the man was a word beginning with f and ending in uckwit that it hurts, but not as badly as my spine which was basically beyond surgical repair and totally another word starting with f.

I need the PIP application form. I need to read it so I can help a close friend who is as yet undiagnosed with FM.
He has heart failure and an aneurysm and could die at any time and they expect him to work... he cannot walk 100 metres without a pump to breathe and I feel physically sick because if I cant help him.... he will die.

I do think he might have FM also because of the depression, headaches, generalised pain and total exhaustion but even if he hasnt I IMPLORE YOU TO PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help us....

I need a copy of the PIP application to help him apply for help because he is literally suicidal after being called for a work group interview which he is mentally unable to cope with.

His health issues are complex and many are undiagnosed due to his literal inability to cope with people and the demands placed upon him in social situation.

I have given you my best advice as a social worker now people PLEASE PLEASE help us.

I know the DLA application form but need a copy of the PIP one so I can carry him through it.
I can tell you that this man literally cant get out of bed some days because of total depression and exhaustion. He is the most kind, giving and generous person who has not claimed DLA despite being in stage 4 heart failure and now is expected to work?

He is not a pity party. By gosh it has taken me almost a year to persuade him to deal with the idea of DLA only to find PIP.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP US.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I think the only way to get the form is to ring and request it, ive searched the internet at that seems to be the only way, ring them to log the claim then they send you a form if you don't want to do it over the phone x

I have recently rang DWP to ask for a form and they have said that I they do not send them out and that I have to complete it on line. I don't like the idea of having to do it on line so don't know what to do.

Wishing your friend well and hoping he can hold it together to get through all the trials and tribulations he seems to be facing
