Another big thank you was created by David C
Here is another big thank you to B&W for the excellent advice. My daughter was on standard rate PIP for daily living and mobility from 2015 until July 2018, when her benefits were stopped after a medical assessment at her home. We submitted a mandatory reconsideration request, but this just confirmed DWP's decision. We then made a 'freedom of information' request to DWP, and were able to see that their decision was entirely based on the medical assessment report, which contained significant inaccuracies and omissions. Using the excellent B&W guides, we submitted an appeal, together with a witness statement from my daughter's husband, who was present at the assessment. At the tribunal yesterday, the court found in my daughter's favour; the PIP has been reinstated from July 2018 until 2021, and her PIP has been increased to the enhanced rate for both daily living and mobility. A big relief. Thank you.
