TOPIC: Pip awards received today

Pip awards received today 3 months 2 weeks ago #175956

I would like to say a huge thank you for the pip guide it was a lifesaver. I have been in receipt of indefinite award since 2009 where I had to go through an appeal which I found so invasive and stressful I was awarded low care and high rate mobility indefinitely after atos had reported I didn't qualify for any dla I only won the appeal due to the guide on here.I had deteriorated greatly in 2013 but refused to contact dla to claim increase in care award as vowed I wouldn't put myself through that experience again.Brown envelope arrived as I knew it would eventually to claim for pip my friend and I followed the guide compilled my evidence sent it off I received a call from a nurse who was very nice asked 3 questions advised I didn't need face to face examination I was shocked to say the least only 3 weeks later I have a brown envelope I felt too sick to open it my friend read it to me awards are enhanced for both care and mobility the award is on going.I can't thank you enough i have recommended numerous people over the years who have also found it to be a life line.
