    Benefits & Work Forum 16th Mar 17 at 4:30 PM
    I am new to this site, forgive me if this information has already been posted:
    As a new user I am unable to post the link - this is easily found if you google: Benefits and works

    For people out there struggling to complete PIP forms, as I was a few weeks ago, or indeed, other paperwork generated by the DWP
    These people have created easy to follow guides to help fill in the endless reams of paperwork the DWP is producing.
    Forum users have the facility to ask questions regarding benefits. Questions that are in the main, answered by qualified professionals - with legally correct and up to date advice.
    There is a fee for joining @ 19:95 a year, but from what I have already seen this is money well spent, the PIP Guide in particular is extremely informative.

    Hopefully this will help,

    Very happy early retired Mum, surrounded by the Welsh hills, our dogs, cats, goats and poultry

    The forum and guides may be useful, but the way they scaremonger is disgusting.

    Often they're not even right in their doom laden predictions.

    Of course, the scaremongering just makes people believe they need the guides even more...

    I also think the B&W guides are great and worth every penny of the charge.

    I can work through them at my own pace, and there isn't much expertise in local welfare rights for people with ME. I am often not well enough to leave the house and wouldn't be able to cope cognitively with dealing with the claim over the phone.

    Its horses for courses. Different people find different modes of assistance most appropriate.
    It is a good idea to be alone in a garden at dawn or dark so that all its shy presences may haunt you and possess you in a reverie of suspended thought.
