TOPIC: High Rate Care and Mobility Aware, No Med or F2F

High Rate Care and Mobility Aware, No Med or F2F 1 year 6 months ago #190710

Just want to thank everybody here, and especially everyone who has contributed to the very comprehensive PIP guides, and now hopefully the ESA guides. After much aggravation, and help from my MP, managed to receive computer editable form, which I completed much as the paper copy using all the advice learned, and including all the documentation from my Continuing Health Care assessment. The combination of the two would seem to have led to a desktop decision to award the high rate of care (from low rate - hadn't wanted to risk PIP any earlier than necessary) and continuation of high rate mobility award.

All I can say is Woo Hoo!

Now to return to trying for the more complicated task of re-applying for contributory ESA with direct entry to the support group, otherwise I've had 'my year' or would only have to start again after 18 months or more. Real pleased to renew my membership with a 20% discount.
