i applied for converting from DLA to PIP early as I reliased my care needs had increased (previously nil care, high mobility). I didn’t join benefits and work as I found enough info on the web including gov.uk
i made sure I filled the form in slowly but still meeting the deadline set by the DWP.
I luckily do not have emotional, memory, hearing issues so ticked ‘no’ for the questions that covered them descriptors.
If you can get GP/Neuro or nurse letters to support you then do that. I told them about all the physical AIDS I use (grab rails, perching stools, slip on shoes(cant do laces), Velcro fastenings (struggle with buttons)). This all scored points. So did tablet box for my mess as fingers aren’t good. My partner fills the box for me. He is great.
i was honest with them on the form and at the assessment. I phoned to change the location to one closer to home. You must say how you are on the majority of occasions. I use sat nat in the car but it’s more for convenience than need so ticked I can plan and follow a journey. I don’t have any issues with my head in doing this.
i got a letter awarding high mobility and standard care which I what I felt I should get. The
assessor was nice and I think saying it as it is helped.
