TOPIC: pip appeal

pip appeal 9 months 3 weeks ago #174606

just had my appeal for my pip as i was dropped from enhanced rate of both care and mobility to standard rate won my enhanced rate back for care but not for mobility still on standard rate even though i had evidence from my doctor saying i could not walk more than 20 meters have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in my hands and shoulders on top of my degenerative spinal condition also suffer from deathness in both ears for which i wear hearing aids even with all my evidence and the dm admitting i should have got more points i still had to appeal they would not change there decision on a reconsideration i have been told by the tribunal that i should inform the dwp of a change in circumstances and i should get my enhanced rate of mobility back im very confused at the whole situation and afraid that if i do inform them of a change in circumstances then i will have to fill the forms in again and then start the assessment stages all over again even though they have a copy of the letter from the doctor

Hi smg,

I am glad that your tribunal was partly successful but sorry that you did not get back your enhanced mobility.

You are right in thinking that notifying DWP of a change of circumstances is most likely to result in a full reassessment of your claim, including a PIP2 to complete and, possibly, another face2face assessment.
