I have a question if someone could help me? I recently received my PIP award (am transferring form DLA for indefinitely) & have got the enhanced rate for mobility and standard for daily living, I missed out on enhanced by 1 point.
After advise from Welfare Rights, my MS Nurse & Benefits & Work, I’m asking for a mandatory reconsideration. I’m hoping to get that extra point as although I haven’t yet got a copy of the HC professionals report I am going by the decision letter I have got & 3 of the descriptors are wrong. I use a lidded & weighted cup for drinking & got 0 pts, I have a voice amplifier to use when my voice becomes weak which is everyday, especially at night & I received 0 for that also, the reason being is that these things are not considered an appliance?
Can anyone tell me if they have been in a similar situation & have they had their first application award reversed after the mandatory reconsideration please?
Any feedback will be greatly welcomed x
