Good on you Carole for seeing it through. I had to reapply a while a go and got standard for mobility and care but think I should have got higher rate for mobility but didn’t at the time have the strength to appeal so just let it go. I admire anyone that can take on the DWP. I now feel like I have let myself down. On the plus side I got it for four years instead of the three I got last time.

Yipee!! Another three years till the next stress fest.

Pleased to hear your news iam waiting for my appeal date.xx

Can I be a bit cheeky , and ask if your pip has been awarded indefinitely? I have received mine , with a review in 30 months time? Presumably they will have found a cure by then!,!?

my award is to 2023.

six years before i have one of those delightful forms to fill in!

why have i got mine for 6 years and you haven’t - duh cos it’s the bloody DWP

PIP is never indefinite (sigh) the maximum is 10 years. Often (usually?) only 3 years. So six years isn’t a bad result. It still makes you wonder in what way we’re supposed to need less in terms of care and mobility help as time goes on and we age …

Congratulations on winning your appeal. I too won my appeal today, went from 10 points on both to 12 on both. To anyone going through the process do it. The three people I saw today listened, and treated me like a human being, which I was not expecting. Will celebrate with a drink at the weekend.

i keep smiling every time i read that another has won on appeal!

i like smiling so come on everybody fight and win!

a bit of funny - i read the letter several times but couldn’t believe i’d got such a good result, kept thinking it was my scrambled brain reading it wrong.

so i phoned welfare rights and said “i received a lettuce today, sorry a letter…” duh!
