TOPIC: 2points from enhanced mobility

2points from enhanced mobility 5 months 2 weeks ago #220653

Hi I’ve just been awarded my first pip , I got 10 points based on reason 1D mobility

I’m rather mixed and reading on line I know I’m not on my own here , how unfair it is , I had a avocate with me during the interview and I called to tell him I had got my pip award...I mentioned about the 2 points and he made it very clear that I was playing with fire and could loose what I have already got , I think it’s dreadful that we are scared to appeal because we may loose what we are instilled to ...

So do I just leave it or do I ask for it to be re looked at ?

Also how do I get to the search link I can not find it amd wanted to search for other people’s comments on this .

Kind regards

Here's the problem, you have been awarded the 10 points for being unable to Undertake a Journey, I assume you did not score for the Moving Around activity, this is considered to mutually exclusive with your ability to follow a route, basically, if you cannot leave the house then your ability to get to a destination won't be considered.

So, the only way for you to score higher is to fundamentally undermine the reasons that you have scored the ten points that you already have. I am not saying that you cannot be successful at doing this but if you aren't then it could result in your losing your current Mobility award.

Hi I’m still thinking but to be honest I’m scared to fight it in case I loose my points I’ve already been given , it’s naughty off them really and very clever ... we are definitely not on our own , seems to be a very common practice...
