TOPIC: Big Brown envelope Day today. Great result!

Big Brown envelope Day today. Great result! 1 year 7 months ago #141515

Hi, Its another success.! I want to say a big thank you for putting me straight with the insight into the form filling for PIP. Today I received standard rate Mobility and Standard rate Living component. Paid till 2021 !!!!

I most certainly would never have got this without the help of this site, you guys have been marvellous in not only supplying the correct information but updating it too.
I made the initial phone call on August 10th filled out the forms etc.and posted them off within 7 days. I was interviewed at home on 14th Sept and received my award letter today 2nd October (postcode area (Rugby) Cv21) that is 18 days from the day of my face to face interview.
This was not expected so early. 2 1/2 weeks must be a record. The relief of the burden of stress is intoxicating on one hand but the thought of those who are in dire need and are unable to get relief is just as sobering on the other.
Dont give up, is my advice, and do your homework thoroughly.
