Pip Appeal success 3 years 1 month ago #197350

Hi,
I got low rate DLA for a number of years but was refused PIP just before Christmas. I have mainly mental health problems and the HP I saw for the f2f was an occupational therapist and scored me 0.
I did the MR and appeal using the guides from here. Before I went to the hearing I went to Benefit Advice and the adviser who was supporting me said that I had filled in the appeal better than he could have done it himself.
Today 9 months on was the appeal hearing and happily I was awarded the standard rate of the daily living component. The tribunal did disagree with my support needs deciding on three categories that I needed prompting rather than support which would have been the difference between enhanced and standard but frankly I think the way points are calculated is not well thought out in the first place so overall I am extremely happy.
I can't thank you enough for your excellent publications, without them I am sure I would have been unable to get the right result.
