I’ve been putting this off, but it’s going to happen anyway, so do I bite the bullet or wait for the inevitable.
Several years ago I was granted DLA highest rate for mobility, then about three or four years later the middle rate for the care component.
Since then my needs have increased substantially, but I’ve heard so many stories about PIP being refused I thought it best to leave well alone and make the best of what I’ve got rather than risk losing the lot.
However, someone has pointed out to me that I really should make the claim now and that my mobility is so poor I ought to be on the higher rate. I think PIP only has two rates though.
So, what do you all think? Claim now or wait to be contacted?
