TOPIC: PIP success

PIP success 2 years 5 months ago #124726

The dreaded brown envelope dropped on the mat this morning.
I have been awarded enhanced rate for care and standard rate for mobility. :)
I feel I met a higher descriptor for planning and following journeys which would have attracted the enhanced rate so I'm pondering the risk of asking for a reconsideration of that component.
Mods, Thank you so much for your excellent guides and patient support whilst waiting for a decision.

Thanks for your comments regarding The Mods, we try our best !! :)
