    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

PIP 2 Form. Information needed.

Recommended Posts

Hello and good morning,

I have been informed that my DLA is stopping and was asked if I wanted to claim PIP which I have done over the phone. I was hoping to download the form online until the proper form arrives in the post. I thought if I could fill in the forms with a little more time to consider my answers without the pressure of returning the completed forms on the dates that they require. Does anyone know whether the 2018 forms are the same for 2019 because I don't want to download them if the government has decided to change anything. Thank you for any help you could give me. Alan.

Think they are the same, but might  be better to get in touch with an advice agency to help with completion, of the paper forms when they arrive.as the forms are full of detractors (questions that look the same but are designed to trip you up into making you look better than you are), and the DWP are strict with their timescales.

 

Unclebulgaria will probably be able to give further advice on what to download and other stuff you have started the process which has to be started by phone according to the guide here: https://www.gov.uk/pip/how-to-claim


We could do with some help from you.

Hello brassnecked,

Thank for getting back to me, I have decided not to bother with claiming for PIP. I have filled in so much paperwork over the years and all the stress it caused not just with my health but with my marriage also. Thanks again. Alan.

I agree with BN. Do you have anyone to help you like the CAB or welfare rights at the council or a charity? It seems a shame to miss out on money if you're entitled to it.

I got one of those last month 

 

Now got my PIP form.......

 

My B&W PIP test thingy gives me 14 daily & 10 mobility. 

 

Going to be tricky at initial assessment, but if it has to be appealed then I've got 9-12 months to get my arguments together so..... mental health - wing and a prayer - https://pipinfo.net

 

I'm actually quite optimistic (in my fight abilities) and the time scales means it's do able if it goes to appeal.

Thank you all for getting back to me, I have given it a lot of thought but I won't claim for pip. A few months ago I had a letter about claiming for ESA about money that they might have not paid me I filled in the form and was told they needed more information It went on for 3 months filling in forms phone calls waiting for them to phone me which they never did even though I had told them thats what the last person I had spoken to had said. I really can't cope with all the upset, I was given DLA for life after a doctor came to my home for over 2 hours only for them to change it without me knowing to indefinite a couple of years later. I also had to go for a medical and was seen for less than 10 minutes and was told I had to sign at the job center the job center wouldn't allow me to sign on because of my problems.It took a couple of months to get that sorted out that was because one of the job center staff helped me. I'm 69 soon and really will manage on my pension. Thank you all again. Alan.

Indefinite is what DLA for life awards became when PIP was introduced. Zero reassessment (unless you got caught up in a random quality review) but would end on an indefinite date when transition to PIP happened.

 

I'm sorry you've had issues with the ESA back payment trawl - have tried to find somebody via Advice Local who can help you?  Or CAB/council/disability charity/etc https://advicelocal.uk

 

With the PIP if you carry on with the application your DLA will continue until  the PIP decision is made...... and you never know you might get lucky.

 

I was a bit worried about it all but it looks and has been quite straight forward so far. My philosophy is Win or lose at least my DLA will continue for a couple of months and allow me to make plans for when it stops. 

 

If you don't then your DLA will end basically 4 weeks after the PIP invitation letter arrives. Well it's 8 but payment is suspended after 4 weeks .

Hello speedfreek,

Thank you for the info, I have had many things to deal with over the years and had help in the past from C A B.and other people also, My son has offered to make up what money I will lose so after some thought thats what we have decided. I have proven so many times that I have got problems but still they want more. nervous break downs, back operations, and now I have anemia due to low red blood count. I had to go to hospital to make sure it wasn't cancer. I started with angina and also had a heart attack about 5 years ago. Thank you again but I have made up my mind.

Best regards to you all.

Alan.

If you are of pension age then lapse your PIP claim ..... you do realise that you now can't make a new disability benefit claim?

 

Existing disability claims pre pension age carry on after pension age.

 

So...... 

 

Your call of course but if you had a Indefinite DLA Award then you stand an excellent chance of a PIP award till end of life! When ever that might be!

 

Don't claim then.... well I can't understand it tbf!
