Demand ATOS to take on the required extra staff needed to bring down their possible 1st payment date for a disabled persons claim for PIP. Currently they quote 26 weeks from claim to payment. The claimant is not able to ring in to check up on progress unless this 26 week period has elapsed.
Why is this important?
What is a claimant supposed to do in the meantime for paying their mortgage and bills. The cleaners and carers needed to take care of a claimant will not wait for their payment, The whole process just is far too slow. People who are disabled can be claiming PIP for all kinds of ailments. Some of which, adding stress to their situation, will only make their health worse. How can this current situation be acceptable. Why aren't the ministers and MP's, who are in place to help, are not making a debate in parliament about this. They are in their positions to help the people of the UK. Please sign this petition and force them to act now.
