Hello I would just like to ask a quick question.i am currently waiting for a pip appeal date which was logged in March 2019.i was on low rate mobility indefinite,but when I had to change to pip I scored zero points for care and mobility.i put in a MR but still no change.i received my appeal bundle and it says they are willing to give me 10 points mobility and to ring if I want to accept the offer.i now need care due to my mental health,even though the offer for mobility is in the appeal papers can they still take that away at appeal.many thanks

You either have to accept the DWP offer for Standard Mobility or continue with the appeal.

If you accept the offer then you can request a new appeal for the Daily Living component, the panel for the new appeal can remove and add points, if the Mobility award was in danger then the Judge is required to warn you and allow you to withdraw your appeal.

The Tribunal cannot consider any changes to your conditions that have occurred since the date of the original Decision.
