TOPIC: PIP Success

PIP Success 1 year 2 months ago #217279

Following the introduction of PIP 5 years ago I have lived in fear ever since about what would happen to the essential support I relied upon from my DLA when required to undertake the transfer. Finally the inevitable happened.....it was my turn.

Truthfully, I found the whole experience horrendous. It made me ill and caused considerable anxiety but after much valuable assistance from the excellent PIP Guide and the kind folks on this forum not to mention some 119 days of trepidation I have finally received my award notification!

The DWP have determined that my entitlement extends to the enhanced rate for both Daily Living and Mobility. This is an amazing relief for which I cannot begin to thank you all enough!!

On the negative side despite having satisfactorily established that I suffer from a properly diagnosed, clearly progressive long term condition (which even the assessor acknowledged in their report can only deteriorate) they have only given a 3 year award meaning I'll have to face it all again just 2 years hence..... Overall though I can't be disappointed as you can imagine...:)
