DLA to P.I.P. Success 3 years 9 months ago #185912

:ohmy:Following 2 years of worry and stress regarding being forced to transition, despite being on Highest rate mobility and middle rate care indefinitely, I have just received the decision regarding that transition, and have been awarded Higher rate for both categories !

I have to admit to probably being one of the luckier ones, as I had no cause for complaint during the whole process. I did have a face to face assessment by Atos, and after receiving a copy of the Nurse's notes, whilst not 100% accurate, I was still awarded 16 points for care and 12 for mobility so I can't grumble. She was polite, personable, and didn't ask me to do anything she thought might cause me any pain, which was a relief.
On the two occasions that I needed to contact the DWP (Wolverhampton) they too were both helpful and polite :)
End result took a mere 16 days from the face to face assessment, and my award increased overall. I can't put into words how delighted I am. The award says "ongoing" though no date was added, as in some claimant cases.
I can't thank Benefits and Work enough for the advice and assistance I found in the "guides", they were invaluable and were IMO, 100% responsible for helping me towards the right result.

Thanks guys ........... YOU ROCK !
