But I think they will be affected in the future when the PIP award is reassessed, the new rules will apply?

Hi Harry C. Sorry I'm unsure of what you mean?

I am so confused!

I keep seeing the word reliably. I keep reading other members comments and PIP guides and I'm just confusing myself further :( Is this a word that I should be using when filling in my husbands forms, even though he is unable to complete any tasks reliably?

I also asked the question earlier about supporting evidence, which was answered, thank you. But I just wanted to check, alot of our evidence dates back to 2008, dont really have anything after that date, although I will see what I can get from the mental health outpatients. I have already sent this in the past, can I send it again?

You should certainly send in what evidence you have. Refer to it in your answers and point out how it supports your claim.

Yes' reliably' is a word you should use in your answers if you want to make use of it.

Reliably means -

• Safely – in a fashion that is unlikely to cause harm to themselves or to another person.
• To a necessary and appropriate standard – given the nature of the activity.
• Repeatedly – as often as is reasonably required.
• In a timely manner – in a reasonable time period.

Thank you Mrs Hurtyback

But if he is unable to reliably do anything, ie cook a meal, be left alone etc. I do everything. He would endanger himself and others if he was to be left to his own devices. So am I correct in thinking that the use of the word reliably would not apply to him?

I think you have misunderstood.

To not score points a claimant must be able to reliably complete an activity on the majority of days.

If they are unable to complete the task then they are not reliably able to do it.

This may be because they simply cannot do the task but it could also be because they cannot do it safely, or to a necessary standard, or they cannot repeat the activity or do it in a timely manner.
