TOPIC: PIP renewed at enhanced rate NO medical.

PIP renewed at enhanced rate NO medical. 9 months 3 weeks ago #222190

After a ten week wait, I got the letter today to say that I have been re-awarded pip at enhanced rate (19 points...same as last time) with no medical.

I am pleased to have the continuing financial support, I am pleased they have recognised the difficulties I experience as a result of mental health problems and I am pleased that they are not forcing me through a traumatic assessment. I strangely feel a bit sad too because it also reaffirms to me the problems that I have. Is that weird?

Thank you for support from here and the invaluable advice on filling in forms.

As far as I am aware hippyhappy received the award as a result of their assessment.

PIP Standard Mobility is the same as DLA Lower Rate Mobility. The reasons that DLA Higher Rate Care is awarded has no equivalent under PIP, can you show that you should have scored 12 points for PIP Daily Living?
