I am self employed and obviously worried about losing income on that basis. I am a carer for my youngest son who is 28 with ASD, ADHD, Dyspraxia and OCD. I also care for my elderly disabled father. My son had a F2F with Capita a few weeks ago and this morning I had a letter informing us that his PIP will stop. Timing could not be worse. I know we can appeal but that takes time. Anyone else worrying about income?

Absolutely worried sick about income. Nothing else to say. I've been OKish up to now, but had a full scale panic attack this morning.

I really do sympathise, no help to you I know.

My friend who has various disabilities, has been waiting 9 mths for an tribunal after they stopped her PIP.
Both her husband and daughter are on disability too.

One son and one daughter jobs both at risk. I have just been 'let go' and on a zero hours contact there is no help going to be forthcoming.
