DLA TO PIP ENHANCED ON BOTH 5 years 7 months ago #160241

A great big thank you to all moderators of B AND W and also forum members from which I was able to glean advice and complete the form in detail with lots of supporting evidence. My husband had his assessment from DLA to PIP with myself in attendance late April. I made a claim on his behalf as his carer the first week in January 2016.

We had a lovely O.T. from Atos who undertook the assessment and was very pleased with the awards. Due to his mental and physical difficulties, my husband experiences the assessor spoke to me directly apart from some questions which he directed to my husband.during the one-hour assessment.

I made a request for the HP report before the decision letter to get an idea of how he would fair. The report was very balanced and fair some minor omissions on his medication dosages, however, but apart from that it was detailed and gained him an award. :) :)

Initially, he was on lower rate care, high rate mobility so a great result. The award is for 6 years so he will be reassessed in 2021.

Once again a big thank you to all that contribute to the forum and the great moderators who are passionate about getting the information and advice out to those like my husband. Without the guidance of the guides, I would not have been able to complete the form on behalf of my husband.

Hello Tonyraf

So pleased to hear that you had a positive outcome from your f2f. It's nice to know that it can sometimes be a reasonably pleasant experience. Might reassure other members :)

It's good to hear it's a good lengthy award also, so you won't be stressed out again too soon!!

Thank you for letting us know, and for your very positive comments. :) :)
