ATOS are wonderful............. 5 months 1 week ago #221241

well i guess like me you have nothing to lose as you had nothing to start with, one bonus i guess that we got zero points, they cant take anthing away can they, but in saying that, knowing the DWP like i do, itll be minus points, im surprised they havent come up with that idea yet

Hi Frank

I have had similar issues with my mums PIP renewal, she has agoraphobia and other mental health issues it’s very hard to get the supporting evidence needed when they are not present in your daily life. I note in your post you say you were awarded 12 points on the Mobility part ? Was this due to your mental health ? Or another medical condition you have ? I hope you don’t mind me asking, it’s just there is a lot of confusion re mental health and the mobility section, mum is always award 10 points but I am trying to get her the 12 points needed. Having a car would be her safe space and maybe we could get her to leave the house.

Kind regards

does your mother have physical mobility probllems ? ...thats the only way you will be abler to get 12 points as the pyschological o0nly gets you 10....I had only been out a couple of times in the past year and they gacve me standard rate on both elements
