TOPIC: DLA to PIP success

DLA to PIP success 1 year 1 month ago #189078

I wanted to say thank you for your advice. My daughter has both ankles fused and had a lifetime award for higher mobility rate of DLA, but on being assessed for PIP was given just a few points. However, she asked for mandatory reconsideration using one of your letter templates and, four weeks after having to hand back her car, has been awarded enhanced mobility for four years! Equally thrilling and exasperating - all that worry and stress of finding and affording another car, tax and insurance for nothing. She is a 4th year medical student and absolutely depends on her car. So thank you again.

I'm 66, on care and mobility DLA, and hoping against hope that I won't be reassessed. But I'm reassured that if I am, I'll have access to your advice.

Congratulations on your daughter's award and getting it revised in her favour.

I'm afraid all DLA claimants who were under the age of 65 on 8 April 2013 will be invited to claim PIP.

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?
