Hi everyone, not been on here for a couple of years but I do keep up with you all.
I had a face to face at home on Tuesday 14th November , the gentleman was very nice and understanding but I had read about people thinking that it went well only to find that the person had written down a lot of different things so I was apprehensive about it all.
Well I got my PIP award letter yesterday, I was really scared about it all but it all went well. I have been awarded enhanced rate for the mobility which I was already getting and gone up to the enhanced rate for the daily living needs, I was on the medium rate on the DLA before, I’ve got them both for an ongoing period which I think is 10 yrs?!
I did think that it would be back dated to when I phoned them (September 28th) but it actually starts on January 3rd , is this normal?
I am so relieved that it’s all over, everyone kept saying I’d be fine but i just couldn’t get the thought out of my head that something was going to go wrong and I would have to appeal.
