TOPIC: DLA to PIP success.

DLA to PIP success. 1 year 1 month ago #218180

I wanted to just say thank you for the guide's and help from here. I received a letter on the 4th of may telling me I needed to apply for PIP, yesterday I received the letter to tell me I was awarded PIP at the enhanced rate for daily living and standard for mobility until May 2020 (I was originally on high rate care and low mobility.). I have bipolar disorder and anxiety, and this 4 month wait has been awful I was convinced I was going to get nothing, especially the longer it seemed to be going on for. However I promised that if I did get good news I would share it. The information from the guide's were valuable, and helped us fill in the form with enough detail. I can't thank this website enough.

Glad you got an award Naomi....I have exactly the same conditions as you bi polar & anxiety ( mine has been defined as social anxiety. At an MR I was awarded standard rate for both componants....but an award till 2028. It was weird they totallly ignored my toileting issues which wud have taken me to 13 points in all if they gave me 2 for prompting as they had with everything else.. I could not face an appeal.
These awards are all arbitary nothing really adds up. Also I got lower rate of mobility cos I find it difficult going out through anxiety not physically....if I use the money to GO OUT...does this mean I shouldn't be getting it ??
