An­gered by ben­e­fit pay

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

HOW can the Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions award per­sonal in­de­pen­dence pay­ments (PIP) to peo­ple who are meant to be not well but can lead a nor­mal life?

By that I mean have nights out and hol­i­days two or three times a year. It’s the same with peo­ple who suf­fer from drug or al­co­hol abuse.

Yet peo­ple who are gen­uinely ill don’t get any help what­so­ever. It makes me an­gry when I see this. I’ve worked all my days for what I’ve got.

These pay­ments make you won­der when some peo­ple are sanc­tioned for the slight­est thing and can go weeks with­out money.

Beg­gars be­lief.
