TOPIC: Thank you.

Thank you. 11 months 4 weeks ago #159703

I would just like to say thanks again to this little gem off a site. I used all the guides and information on this site to fill in my PIP claim. I got enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility.

I had to fight with ATOS for home visit, got doctor, MP involved, success after them refusing at first, just stick to you guns, I know it's hard but do it.

One interesting point. I had gave all the descriptors and the points allocations to my support worker before the assessment. The assessor was skimming over the questions on each descriptor, and my support worker and I would stay on the same question until we were satisfied we had said all we wanted to say.

The assessor noticed my support worker reading from the document and asked what it was, we showed it to the assessor, they asked where we got it from. I told the assessor Benefits and Work, well the assessor whole attitude then changed after that. There was a wry smile on the assessor face.

They are aware off this site and the great work it does. The know that it does not give out duff advice, and the information it supplies it spot on.

Thanks all again, you moderators are worth your weight in gold.
