TOPIC: Awarded PIP Daily Living & Mobility Enhanced Rate!

Awarded PIP Daily Living & Mobility Enhanced Rate! 1 year 5 months ago #155651

Hi there

A huge thanks to you all. I heard today that I have been awarded both daily living and mobility at the enhanced rate. I think it is for three years although in one place 2018 is mentioned so a bit confusing. I also got a copy of the report and I have got more points in places where I didn't think I would and fewer or no points in places where I definitely should have, But you win some you lose some! The main thing is I got enough points on each. I couldn't have done it without the manuals and I have saved myself the stress of MR and appeal.

So big thanks to benefits&Work team :)

Thanks Gordon.

Yes it was so unexpected! I was hoping for standard daily living and anything else was a bonus. I did seem to get quite a few points here and there for aids and appliances, although my fatigue which is a huge part of my Fibromyalgia seemed to be largely ignored in places eg I felt I should have got points for prompting and assistance on a few. But I am not going to argue the toss!

hi, i also have chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, why do they ask if doing an activity gives you fatigue if they ignore it. did you submit any letters from a chronic fatigue specialist. thank you

Hi Elsie
I probably put a lot of time into it but I spread it over weeks. I even started filling it out before getting the letter so you can do preparation now. I don't see a chronic fatigue specialist...in fact my GP didn't mention CFS but she did mention Fibromyalgia. I prepared my asking my GP to support me and she said she would when the time came for migration.
With Daily Living my points added up for aids and applicances, 2 points here and there. I definitely should have got prompting/assistance for taking nutrition, washing and bathing and taking in information (I cannot do it when I'm fatigued and asleep, lol). But I got nothing for nutrition. 2 for washing and bathing (aids and appliances although I only had two baths last year and none this year so should have got full points there) and none for taking in info. But still managed to get 13 points and 14 on mobility where luckily my mental health was taken into consideration too.
