TOPIC: Query about PIP mandatory reconsideration

Query about PIP mandatory reconsideration 5 months 3 days ago #174182


I have a question about mandatory reconsideration for PIP, I have received my award and actually received Enhanced mobility, so I've got Motability back after having it removed for 18monyhs, they have now taken the care element away completeley.

Thing is I am 1 point off getting the standard care. I believe using an aid for medication is 1point, and they have stated I don't use an aid for my medication ( I use a medication box with the times on along with reminder on my phone and still forget if I'm not handed my medication). They have also stated I don't have a SPLD, which I provided my statements for.

My question is if I ask for a mandatory reconsideration, would they just look at the points raised or is there a possibility they could take the enhanced mobility off me?

Any help would be appreciated.

I am afraid I cannot offer a guarantee that the DWP won't look at your Mobility, but I would not expect them to do so.
