DLA to PIP SUCCESS 1 year 13 hours ago #237605

I had a face to face assessment at home a couple of months ago (I didn't ask for it to be at home but was pleased not to have to travel).
I felt it didn't go well as I became agitated and upset.
I asked for, and received, a copy of the assessors report which appeared fair and accurate. However, I didn't hold out much hope of retaining my 'lifetime' DLA after reading of so many people being turned down. After all I 'only' have osteoarthritis and a cognitive disorder!

The dreaded brown envelope arrived a few weeks later and imagine my surprise when I opened it ..... not only have I retained High Rate Mobility but I have been awarded High Rate Care too :)

The letter states I will be reviewed again in 10 years by which time I'll be in my 70's.

Thanks to all at Benefits and Work who's newsletters were an encouragement to me as well as the user guides.
