Having MS is enough. It shouldn't be made harder by a welfare system that doesn't make sense.
Source MS Society: "Welfare support is vital for many people with MS. It helps us manage the extra costs of the condition, stay in work for longer and participate fully in society."
"Yet our welfare system too often ignores invisible symptoms like pain and fatigue and fails to recognise how MS symptoms fluctuate."
The assessment criteria for PIP fail to capture the true extent of the difficulties people face. And benefits assessors don't always take evidence provided by professionals into account. Too often people with MS are under pressure to repeatedly prove they need support."
