DLA TO PIP AWARDED ENHANCED RATE ONGOING 3 months 3 weeks ago #251535

Hi

I was on Dla High rate for both Indefinate award. I was told to apply for pip as i moved house before Covid 19 I followed your guide filled in form, got letter from doctor supporting my illness how it affects me. I asked for home visit they agreed but due to covid 19 they then said i have to have telephone assessement. A nurse called me she said this was her first assessment, she said straight away that she will request I get Ongoing rate due to my condition as there is no cure, I was so surprised. She was amazing I felt relaxed, she went through every single question on Pip form in wrong order i answered everything exactly the same it took about 1 hour. She said again at the end she will request ongoing enhanced rate but the end decision is not hers.

About 1 month later I received my letter I waa awarded Ongoing rate, Enhanced rate for Mobility and Care so just a light touch assesment every 10 years. I was soooo happy I was under so much stress filling in form I asked for 3 extensions for me to return it. So I just want to say thank you and that was money well spent worth every penny for the members guide.
