PIP AWARD 11 months 3 weeks ago #155177

Just had the 'brown envelope' of the decision on my transfer from DLA to PIP.

I've been awarded Mobility at enhanced rate.(same as DLA)
Personal care - at enhanced rate. ( from lower rate DLA)

.........and didn't have to go for a medical - all done over the phone.

Thanks to the advice on this wonderfui web site, I was able to supply the DWP with enough written & photographic evidence to avoid the necessity for a medical interview.
I'm sooooo relieved I could cry!
