TOPIC: PIP Success, thank you so much!

PIP Success, thank you so much! 1 year 5 months ago #206637

Thank you so much! I just heard that my DLA mobility component (indefinite) will continue as PIP Mobility (enhanced, till 2022)! I can't believe it. I'd been gearing up for appeal in advance, assuming I'd have to go the distance! I have to say I put huge amounts of effort into my whole application for PIP, and your website was a very valuable source for my research. For anyone else out there facing the ordeal, if you can or have anyone who can do it for you, I'd recommend learning the exact legal meaning of all the descriptors (your site very useful for that), especially 'reliably', collecting a lot of letters of support/medical reports, and giving very full answers on the PIP2 form, always, always using their terminology in full. Make sure you keep photocopies of it all. For the face to face assessment, I notified them in advance and took 2 identical cassette players (not easy to get but still around at argos and similar) and recorded the session, which I'd also researched exhaustively in advance, using the documents on your site, as to what they'd ask, and do, and what the DWP guidelines for assessors are. It's been horribly stressful as most of you will know. 
So thanks again! And good luck going forward to you and all who face the same ordeal.
