I just wanted to express my sincerest gratitude to Benefits and Work because without your comprehensive guides, I don’t think I would have achieved a successful outcome to my PIP application. My application was turned down following assessment and Mandatory Reconsideration; I was awarded zero point at both stages and I almost wasn’t going to appeal.
I have recently had my telephone appeal hearing and I didn’t even get the opportunity to present my case because the panel had already decided I was eligible for both components at standard rate, awarded for four years.
I’m still getting over the shock :)

Hi LB

That is really terrific news, well done and congratulations. It just goes to show do not give up, I know many claimants do give up.

Thank you for posting, it will give hope to members who are thinking about giving up especially if they are unable to get help to complete the relevant stages and the number of hoops they have to jump through. One would think this system was designed to put claimants off :unsure: :whistle:

Thank you Gary,

I can certainly understand why claimants so easily throw the towel in and things have become so much harder now because of the pandemic and the struggle to access welfare rights advice as many services remain closed.

My success has given hope to a friend who applied for PIP about 18 months ago and was turned down also, because they are going to apply again.

£19.95 for a years membership to Benefits and Work is my money well spent in my opinion.
