Pip update

Hello to you all.
I just wanted to give an update on my claim. I Applied for pip back in February last year , no face to face due to COVID , I thought my telephone assessment went well , but it didn’t, I only scored 2 points. After asking for a mandatory reconsideration I was awarded 4 points but my original 2 points were taken away. So with nothing to loose , i opted for a tribunal, which took place on the 22nd of December via a phone call with the judge , a doctor and a disability rights person. I was extremely nervous and couldn’t explain myself properly, I came away after nearly an hour on the phone feeling like a failure and convinced I had lost any hope of being awarded anything.
To my astonishment I received a phone call after Christmas saying I had been awarded standard rate for care and mobility scoring 8 points on each. I’m over the moon with this result. So to anyone in my position please don’t give up , I had one letter with a diagnosis on and no other paperwork or input , but I knew what the HP and decision maker had written was not correct and this is what made me stick with it.
Thank you to everyone on this amazing site .
