PIP success - DWP overturns decision and MR 1 year 2 months ago #251135

I am sharing some good news. I had a PIP assessment in Feb 2020, after being on DLA for 20 plus years. I was awarded only standard rate mobility, so asked for a MR. This took 12 weeks to arrive. It upheld the original decision, taking no notice of any of the points I raised or the evidence. I then applied to appeal, expecting to wait a year, as others have reported. A month later, I received a brown envelope from the DWP. They have overturned the original decision and MR ruling, and awarded me Enhanced rate for both mobility and daily living until 2030. They even awarded points for descriptors that I had not disputed.
My illnesses are invisible and fluctuating, and I am grateful for the Benefits and Work guides, also one from the ME Association.
I am glad I did not give up hope.

That is really terrific news, just a shame that they could not have decided this without you having to request an appeal. Well done.
