TOPIC: Thank you for the help and advice final decisions

Thank you for the help and advice final decisions 1 month 3 weeks ago #196180

Back in February I informed pip of my increased illnesses and went on the dreaded pip journey I have not posted for a while as I have been waiting for decisions for those who have read my updates my benefit from original in February was increase from low rate to high rate and 10 points for mobility which I wasn't happy with also it was only awarded for 18 months which was ridiculous as my main conditions are not going to improve any so I decided to ask dwp to look at my claim again as. Believe I should have been awarded high rate for mobility and for a longer period which I knew there was a slight possibility that they could lower my rate or even. Taken it away it has taken about 12 weeks for them to come to a decision after contacting my gp for information also my physioltherapist and occupational therapist I have constantly rung them to find out what was going on.......finally today the dreaded brown envelope arrived on. My doorstep and I thought great.... bank holiday weekend will be ruined no doubt..... so I was pleasantly surprised to read that dwp decided that the enhanced rate for care was still applicable and for the mobility part which I was appealing had now been given enhanced rate for mobility and also the time in between they have increased for 3 years so that is better than i8 months
They have given me 12 points for moving around instead of 10 however they still didn't increase the planning and following journeys so all in all am happy with the results as well as back dating iit all from February at least. I will be able to relax off for a while as it is a long journey for people to go through that are ill to start with but benefit and work are a great help and a special thanks to gorden for all his help and advice
