TOPIC: DEAF PIP APPEAL WON!!!!

DEAF PIP APPEAL WON!!!! 9 months 1 week ago #222766

You may remeber I posted over a year ago now that I was helping my dad with his PIP appeal. He is profoundly deaf with a CI. He perviously had DLA and lost it changing to PIP. I did my reserach and got relevent case law. The one about safety was huge in getting him points in areas. I wrote a detailed submission laying out his case. For each descriptor I wrote what I belie he should have scored and why.

Today was the tribunal and they had made their decision before we enetered the court room. They were very nice and said that they made their decision already because of my detailed submission and gave points in every area I had asked for. He walked out having won enhanced daily living. Standard mobility and the judge has recommended it indefinitely.

There is hope for the deaf out there.
