TOPIC: Successful ESA and PIP claim

Successful ESA and PIP claim 1 year 2 months ago #145543

Thank you to all at Benefits and Work for the excellent advice, support and guidance you give. I had a successful move from IB to ESA two years ago - into the support group with no assessment, and after being very reluctant to apply for PIP after reading some of the dreadful experiences of some claimants, I've just been awarded both care and mobility components for four years. My PIP assessment was fine, the ATOS HP very kind, empathic and understanding, and the experience was nothing like the trauma I expected it to be. The decision makers letter accurately recognises and sums up my level of pain and restrictions, and awarded me the exact number of points I assessed myself as qualifying for. I just wanted to thank you all for your help, reassure those going through the very stressful application process that sometimes there are some positive stories, and wish everyone well with their claims.
