TOPIC: PIP outcome

PIP outcome 7 months 2 weeks ago #170100

Hi, I would just like to tell everyone not to give in when their award comes through & it's not what they had hoped for. I had my PIP award through on the 12 September & I was given the enhanced rate for care but only the standard rate for mobility. I asked for a Mandatory Reconsideration Notice & less than a fortnight later, having sent in more evidence, the brown envelope dropped through the door & hey presto, they are now giving me the enhanced rate for both for an ongoing period. I was elated & felt an enormous weight lifted from my shoulders.
Thanks too to B&W for all their helpful guidance, money well spent! :P

Thank you for the encouragement! I'm sure I have a good case, but feel so ill and miserable wasn't sure I could go on. So thank you again! Will keep up the fight! Best wishes from Liverpool.
