TOPIC: PIP SUcess!

PIP SUcess! 9 months 1 week ago #222761

My husband has been getting lower rate PIP for some 4 yeras , but no mobility component. He has detereorated msssively this past 18 months and I was concerned about him approaching 65 and wanting to at least get a review of his needs. We got your latest advice. He asked for a review in July . We completed the forms over a good few weeks ,(we had to ask for an extension). This was very stressful for both of us as he always plays down his difficulties and as his carer , I see things differently . We wre hoping at least to get something for mobility. He had a home visit in October., from quite a sympathetic assessor.
He has just his decision letter. Enhanced care and enhance mobility,backdated to July and awarded for 10 years.!..Thanks so much to everybody who contributes to this site and guides , I know we would not have been so sucessful without your support..
