TOPIC: DLAto PIP success. Thank you

DLAto PIP success. Thank you 6 months 3 weeks ago #171897

Thanks to all the help and support here I just received my letter telling me I had been awarded the standard rate mobility and the standard rate daily living when transferring from DLA to PIP.
I didn't even claim some of the things on my claim form for daily living but as part of my assessment the assessor put down things I couldn't do and I was awarded 10 points. I got a 3 year award even though the assessor only recommended 2. When I had a copy of the assessment report there were errors in it but I got what I wanted in spite of that.
It's only due to the expertise of the guides and help on here that I have been successful so thank you so much for your help. Well worth the subscription fee. I shall continue to subscribe because my husband is due to transfer from DLA to PIP at some point when they get round to it

Thanks for all your help

I forgot to say it only took just over three weeks from the time the assessor came to see me till I got the award letter. I was really surprised. I thought it would take longer
