TOPIC: PIP face-to-face

PIP face-to-face 1 year 9 months ago #135536

Hi, thanks to your invaluable guides I've been awarded ESA and put in the SG with enhanced premium and disability element with NO medical. I was delighted but also shocked as in previous claims I've had to fight to get what I'm entitled to. Thanks again B& W.

Now I'm being transferred from DLA to PIP. I've filled in the form again with the help of your guides.

I have to attend a medical in the next town. I've always attended in my own town previously.

Do you think it would be an advantage for me to take my ESA award paperwork with me as supporting evidence?

I'd be very grateful for any advise please.

Congratulations on the SG award and thank you for comments about B&W.

You can take your ESA award documentation but it will serve you better if you look at the areas you have scored points for (ESA) to see how you can relate this to your PIP claim. Do you have a copy of the assessment report as this will be of the most value.
