TOPIC: Ongoing PIP Awarded

Ongoing PIP Awarded 6 months 2 weeks ago #170731

Very similar experience to me - had indefinate DLA with low care and high rate mobility. Had face to face by ATOS in Manchester - it was nothing like as nerve wracking as I had been led to believe. The assessor was very nice and more importantly fair, she asked all the relevant questions and listened to my answers. She did not try and 'trip me up' but was thorough in her questioning. I got the letter today with standard care and high rate mobility - a fair result and one I am obviously happy with. My main problem is pain following a serious accident and my condition is pretty stable , albeit on a slightly downwards (ie getting worse) curve. My award is ongoing - I presume due to lack of likely change and there is no review date at all.
My massive thanks to the people on here for their advice on filling in the forms - worth every penny to register.
My wife burst into tears when we opened the envelope today, so stressed with the whole thing had she become
