TOPIC: Result just in after 5 weeks

Result just in after 5 weeks 5 months 2 weeks ago #231619

I was awarded DLA for life! a number of years ago, following a heart attack and complications at age 62 I was advised not to rock the boat and advise the DWP of my worsening conditions and change to pip, stay on DLA as long as you can. At age 65 I received a letter advising my DLA was ending and if I wanted to, I should apply for PIP. I duly phoned and started the PIP application process. The forms arrived and after examination I decided I needed expert help in compiling/responding to the questions. I found the benefits and work web site excellent in advising on how to present accurately my case to the DWP. After joining and studying the guides, I completed said documents, attaching appropriate medical evidence and as a backstop approached age concern, who reviewed Everything. My medical assessment was arranged and advised for a home visit, the assessor was courteous, professional, thorough, friendly, open as to the process. 5 weeks of anxious waiting I received a PIP award.
Without this sites guidelines plus age concern who also use the excellent guides from here, I am in no doubt my DLA TO PIP would of been horrendous. It’s all about presentation of evidence. Thanks Benefit and Work for your excellent guides and advise
