TOPIC: PIP Some hope for you.

PIP Some hope for you. 3 days 16 hours ago #240157

I just wanted to give you all some hope. After having had DLA/PIP for over 20 years, in January this year after re-assessment, I got 0 points and lost ALL PIP.

The Healthcare Professional lied and got her commission.

I took it to tribunal (on paper) and am delighted to say that tribunal says I qualify for enhanced rate daily living and enhanced rate mobility! The only negative is that they wouldn't change the length of the award, so in 16 months I will be going through this all again, which is ridiculous because I am 65 and won't get better. I have severe OCD.

SO, don't give up. Do take it to tribunal and good luck.

Hi Mosala

Congratulations on winning your PIP tribunal and getting your enhanced award. Good to hear.

Unfortunately, tribunal's rarely change the length of the award.
