DON'T DO IT ALONE
Nothing about PIP is easy or straightforward.
Whether you are making a fresh claim, challenging a decision, asking for your award to be increased or completing a review form, the process is complex and laden with time limits and pitfalls.
Which is why 61% of new claims fail completely.
And why 32% of claimants who have a PIP review have their award reduced or stopped completely.
And whilst the success rate for PIP appeals is almost 70%, only 23% of mandatory reconsiderations are successful and the vast majority of claimants never get past that stage.
But there are things you can do to greatly increase your chances of getting the right result.
Filling in the 37 page PIP2 ‘How your disability affects you’ form in as much detail as possible is vital. It not only means you are giving accurate and consistent evidence from the outset, it also improves your chances of overturning an unfair decision if you have to go to appeal.
Being fully prepared for an assessment is vital too. Knowing what questions you are likely to be asked and what unspoken assumptions may be made based on your answers, unless you deal with them, can make all the difference
And if you don’t get the right decision, understanding the mandatory reconsideration and appeal process is crucial.
Benefits and Work’s downloadable, step-by-step guides to claims, assessments, reviews, mandatory reconsiderations and appeals have helped many thousands of claimants to get the correct award of PIP.
