DLA to PIP success 2 years 1 month ago #238673

This morning I received the result of my DLA to PIP claim, which I've been waiting 8 weeks for with dread. The last I'd heard from the DWP was a few weeks ago when they texted me to say they'd received the assessment report and had all the information they needed (yay! No face-to-face!)

After all that worrying, on opening the envelope though I found I've been awarded enhanced rate mobility and daily living! I was expecting (hoping for) enhanced rate mobility, but didn't expect to get enhanced daily living as well. It's an 'ongoing' award, barring any changes, with a reassessment date of 2029 (which I gather is the longest time they'll leave you between assessments).

I haven't always scored points/the number of points where I'd expected to score them (I suppose if I re-look at my claim and the scoring system it'll make more sense), but to be honest I'm not arguing with enhanced! :-)

Thank you to the other B&W members who've offered advice, to the moderators here on the forum, and most of all to the wonderful people who produce the Guides. I really couldn't have done it without you!

Hi BlissC

Congratulations on your PIP award. Great to hear.

Thanks BIS. What I forgot to mention was that my DLA award was indefinite low rate care and high rate mobility, hence my surprise at getting the enhanced daily living. Like I said though, I'm not arguing with that! :-D

There has been a deterioration in my condition somewhat, but looking at what they've awarded points for, I guess it's partly down to the difference in how they assess the activities how using aids and equipment are used as well as help from another person.
