PIP 1 year 9 months ago #134469

Thanks to this site, I have been successful in my application for PIP, I used to be on DLA like most of you.

My award is High Rate Mobility, High Rate Care, the award is classified as "on-going" any ideas what they mean by this statement, before it was "indefinite"

I do have a very severe disability that is going to get worse not better, not sure if my 9 Consultant reports supporting my claim and stating that my condition is diminishing with little possibility of improvement had anything to do with the terminology used?

Thank God for this site!!! Thanks all so much.

Hi Cfm,

Great news regarding your Enhanced PIP Awards !!

An "Ongoing" PIP award is similar to an "Indefinite" DLA Award in that your conditions and resulting limitations are considered unlikely to improve in the future.

Ongoing PIP Awards are not that common.

Gordon,

What does "on-going" mean in ref to my PIP award?

Thank you bro58, world of knowledge as always. I would urge everyone who has an interest in benefits to join this site, I could never have done this on my own.
