Hypocrisy!

And an announcement that recent changes to the PIP criteria to exclude many with mental health problems and anxiety "will not affect those currently in receipt of PIP". Maybe not, but they will do on the next review.

The Tories used this reason to scrap payments for a surviving partner in 1988, but even Thatcher stopped short of stopping the money for the children.

Re: Worrying news for ESA claimants converting from DLA to PIP.

Many people are finding that they are having their claim reduced or losing help altogether (particularly the mobility part).

This is rarely overturned at the Mandatory Reconsideration stage, but there is a very high success rate when appealing to an independent tribunal.

The Government don't like this and are looking into taking disabled representatives off tribunals and scrapping the opportunity for people to personally state their case by making them paper based decisions only:

This morning's Victoria Derbyshire show had a man on who is dying of cancer. I found it really upsetting to hear him say that he has lived longer than expected, but that it may have been better for him to have died a couple of days ago so that he could die knowing his family had some financial security.

Payments to help widowed parents until the children grow up have been in place since1946, until the "caring" May Government did this.

He also made some good points by saying that this wasn't in the Tory manifesto and that parents who die actually save the Government money because the money paid to help their surviving partner and children is far exceeded by the fact that they won't live to claim their retirement pension that they've paid for before becoming ill.

These cuts will cost his surviving family £44,000, yet his pension pot is worth about £150,000 that he'll never benefit from.

Sounds good den as that is basically what was said to me, then she got up and shook my hand before adding I wish you all the best with your operation I personally found her to be really nice.
