TOPIC: PIP success

PIP success 3 months 1 week ago #181223

I have received the decision about my PIP assessment and I have been awarded PIP.

It was my first claim for PIP and I'd like to thank Gordon,Mrs hurtyback and everyone else.B&W's guide was excellent and truely helpful.

The whole process was surprisingly very quick and took just 2 months from posting the claim form until receiving the result.

I have to say they didn't grant me any mobility award and just gave me 4 points for it,I believe I'd have a very good chance of scoring more in an appeal,however I decided not to proceed in fear of being worse off (they might overturn current award)

still a big relief. :)
