TOPIC: DLA to PIP Success

DLA to PIP Success 1 month 1 week ago #197335

I was on an indefinite award of DLA at the higher rate for both components. I have received my decision letter for PIP and I have been awarded the enhanced rate for both components for an ongoing period so naturally I'm relieved. I scored 31 points on Daily Living and 12 on Moving Around. This is despite the DWP losing and therefore not considering 8 out of 9 pieces of medical evidence I sent in with my form! The guides on this site and advice from Gorden proved to be very useful. I guess being genuinely disabled helped me score the points too! I'd asked for a copy of the medical assessment prior to receiving the decision letter. The points in the decision letter are identical to those indicated in the medical assessment report.

My ESA is up for renewal next year. Last time I received a 5 year award in the support group without a medical. I'll certainly be using the guides on here. However I do have my fingers crossed that I may be part of the small group of people with long term chronic health conditions that aren't reassessed. I'll have to wait and see.
