TOPIC: PIP success!

PIP success! 1 year 6 months ago #190792

Much to my surprise, I got enhanced rate for both care and mobility when transferred form DLA to PIP. My claim was mostly based on CFS which has left me more or less housebound and bed bound. However, the assessor turned out to be a mental health nurse (I do have severe mental health issues too), who understood my problems and spotted additional ones that I hadn't realised should have gone in my claim. I think I was incredibly lucky to have a good assessor who knew about the illnesses I have, and whose report was accurate. I followed all the advice in the PIP guide and I am sure this made a difference too. I really just want to say, given how frightened I was of MR and appeals, I was so relieved I did not have to fight to get the right benefit. Although I was following the advice here, I think I was also incredibly lucky. Sometimes the DWP get it right. We probably hear more about when things go wrong, but it can go right as well.
