Good advisor

Patients with epilepsy can benefit from Personal Independence Payment which is supposed to help people cover additional costs caused by their chronic illness. To receive the PIP you must go through a special assessment.

Have you already applied for PIP and gond through the assessment successfully? How much time did it take you and did you find the process of application easy?

If you didn't get the PIP, what was the motive for the negative answer? Did you then apply for reconsideration?

Are there any other disability/ill-health benefits you've applied for?

What is your opinion of the disability benefit system in the UK? What do you think should be improved?
