Pip renewable 4 months 2 weeks ago #173346

I was reassessed for pip on 20th October. Last december I was awarded standard care and enhanced mobility at Tribunal. I recieved decision today standard care and standard mobility thea award is for five years which is a relief. I have requested assessment as unsure whether to ask for MR re mobility as I need the blue badge rather than increased payment.
I would like to say thanks again to this guide. The process this time was much less stressfull.
Thanks again.

A restrained congratulations on the award :)

If your previous award was primarily based on the Going Out activity then the guidance for this has been updated since you were last assessed, have a look at the PIP Claim guide for more details.

8 points for "Moving around" in PIP gives automatic entitlement to blue badge, I believe. And one doesn't have to be receiving any DLA/PIP to get a blue badge.
