PIP REVIEW 10 months 3 weeks ago #207389

Just received brown envelope for PIP after 20 weeks waiting. They were reviewing my case because I informed them that I had gone on Dialysis and my right hip had collapsed. I have been awarded enhanced rate for Living allowance but only standard rate for mobility, the letter says that by Law I cannot be awarded Enhanced Mobility because I am over 65. Is this correct, I was getting the standard rate long before I was 65. .

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

I'm afraid this is correct, like DLA before it, a mobility award cannot be increased once the claimant passes the age of 65.
