How often is PIP reviewed? | Personal Finance | Finance

Claiming PIP when you don’t really need it is benefit fraud. To keep on top of this, you’ll be assessed by a health professional to work out if you’re really eligible. Claimants are also reviewed on a regular basis to make sure you’re getting the right amount. How often is PIP reviewed?

Heart attack: Sweating without any exertion could be an indicator of the condition

Heart attacks happen when an artery supplying your heart with blood and oxygen becomes blocked, usually by a blood clot. The most common underlying cause of blood clots is coronary heart disease (CHD), a process whereby coronary arteries (the major blood vessels that supply the heart with blood) become clogged with deposits of cholesterol. Experiencing sweating with no valid reason could mean you may be in danger. A study of 1,073 heart attack patients hospitalized for heart attack found that though many individuals ignored the usual symptoms of heart attack, if sweating occurred, patients…

New driving law: Experts says new driverless law change could ‘put lives at risk’

They warn that ALKS tools may be unable to recognise red crosses above smart motorways which could see thousands of road users…

NHS COVID-19 app has fixed ‘worrying’ messages sent to iPhone, Android

A crucial fix has been rolled out to the NHS COVID-19 app, which prevents a number of worrying messages that appeared to warn Android and iPhone users about a possible exposure to someone infected with coronavirus. Tapping on the notification would load the app, but not reveal any further information about the “possible exposure”. Users flooded social media to complain about the message – unsure whether they needed to self-isolate, whether they should try to get a test, or whether it was safe to continue to leave the house for…
