Two weeks ago the dreaded brown envelope landed on my mat for our PIP review, as we had such an awful time when transfered to PIP we were dreading it, renewed my subs and followed the guides, we've today received a phone call from the DHSS ref my claim to be told my claim has been looked at and that my daily living remains the same but my Disability has been reinstated to the highest rate and my award is for 10 years with only light touch reviews from now on as my disabilities will never improve.

To say we are chuffed is an understatement, to anyone reading this and dithering about paying the subs, do it, best money we ever spend, thanks Benefits & Work.

Hello Bytespc,

I am so pleased for you! Well done :cheer:

And thank you for letting us know, when we spend so much time thinking about things going wrong it is really good to hear of things going as they should do!

If you Daily Living needs increase so that you think you are entitled to the enhanced rate there you are of course free to inform them of a change of circumstances and request a review. The possible downside of that is that they would review your entire award, but if things start to get significantly worse it is worth remembering.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy your freedom from PIP concerns,
