Successful renewal - no assessment either! 3 months 2 weeks ago #251706

Just wanted to share my successful renewal story, couldn’t have done it without all the great advice on here. I have bipolar and used to get mid rate care and low rate mobility under DLA (indefinite award). Got transferred to PIP in 2018 (just after leaving hospital having been sectioned) and got enhanced care but no mobility award. Renewal came through about 6 wks ago and I have felt sick with anxiety and fear ever since.

Just got the dreaded brown envelope and much to my surprise have been reawarded enhanced care PLUS low rate mobility this time, didn’t have to endure a phone or face to face assessment which I was dreading so much it made me quite ill.

Only annoying thing is award is only for 2 years (why do they do this to permanent illnesses/disabilities?).

Definitely a win overall though, thanks to this site for all the good advice and I hope more of us start to get positive outcomes without intrusive and stressful assessment appointments.
