TOPIC: PIP for deafness - anyone been successful?

PIP for deafness - anyone been successful? 2 weeks 5 days ago #174304

After many hours of work form sent off today. Had hoped to include letter from my GP who knows me well but they are on long term absence until new year and no one else knows me well enough to write letter to help so it has gone without it....
Dreading the assessment before xmas as have found the past month tough going but will deal with it am sure.
Is it worth mentioning at assessment if they ask if I work that no I am on ESA support group following an appeal and on what grounds I was awarded it (Mental health) or not? Thanks

There can be no harm in mentioning it Nick!

My daughter is also profoundly deaf and has just been awarded standard rate PIP which is equivalent to midrate DLA. Click on my nickname for further information on a very recent upper court case ruling on this which I included as evidence.
