That's great news - 'ongoing' is the PIP equivalent of 'indefinite'! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)

Well done, it must be a huge relief for you.

Can I be rude and ask if you went through the whole system of a face 2 face, MR, appeal etc., or did they spare you the pain of that ?

Thanks so much for answering and again well done on your award.

I know every case is different but it does offer a small glimmer of hope, like you lots of conditions and MS and on lifetime high rate DLA and Mobility since early 90's.......until PIP raised it's head !
