ESA and Pip award was created by brodybams
Hi im a new member and would just like to say a big thank you for the valuable advice i have received since joining,i was in the activity group for esa but thanks to yous i have now been placed in the support group for the next two years,i was hoping for a longer period due to my on going health problems but its a start.
I have also just gone through the ordeal of being moved from DLA to PIP i was receiving the high rate of mobility and the low rate of care allowance on dla but after my assessment i have now been awarded the standard rate of daily living allowance(8points) and the standard rate of
mobility allowance (10 points) until 2021,my first thoughts were of joy even though i will be a bit worse off but the extra money i receive for being placed in the support group of ESA makes up for that,my second thought was to ask them to look at there decision again as i think i should have been awarded more points as i suffer with c.o.p.d. lumbar stenosis angina overactive bladder incontinence and for years anxiety and depression and find it difficult to cope with these problems with living on my own,but dont think i could handle going through the appeal process and a tribunal again which i think i would have had to do were it not for the advice i found on your site so once again many thanks.
Good luck to all the other members on here who are currently fighting for what they rightly deserve.
Thank you.
Dave.

Congratulations on the awards.

If you want to re-visit the Decision on your PIP then you can do so up to 13 months after the date of the Decision although you will have to explain why your request is late.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
