TOPIC: DLA to PIP first tjme success thank you.

DLA to PIP first tjme success thank you. 1 year 1 week ago #202381

I joined because both myself and my partner are on DLA and would have to transfer to PIP. I'm a pensioner and don't know when I'll get the dreaded brown envelope but my partner is working age and has just completed the whole process of transferring to PIP. We completed the questionnaire and prepared for the face to face on our own using the advice available to members here. I joined Benefits and Work and started looking into what would happen and what to do before she'd even received the brown envelope and I'm so glad I did as it took months to go through everything but it has paid off. My partner has serious mental health problems as well as physical issues causing her extreme constant pain. I am convinced that using the correct terminology and "descriptors" throughout the process (learned from this site) was a major factor in her being awarded the enhanced rate in both categories. We are thrilled it's all over for her the only down side is we're unable to jump up and down with excitement to celebrate because of our disabilities. Now I've got to start preparing for my turn so the stress isn't over yet but it's certainly reduced.
Thank you to everyone at Benefits and Work, it's the best £20 I've spent in my life. I belong to some online support groups and am telling everyone about your wonderful service.
