I will always remember this day!
As well as being the 70th anniversay of the D Day landings and everything our forefathers sacrificed and did for us!
But also that after months of agonising before I made the call (am I doing the right thing?!), 133 days of waiting, filling in a very complicated and protracted form (42 pages), having to attend a very tiring assesment in Cardiff 13 miles away (with a very nice Capita Health Professional),numerous phone conversations with the DWP (weekly of late), I had a phone conversation with the DWP today and was informed my claim for PIPs has been:-… GRANTED!!!
I have been granted Standard Care allowance and Enhanced Mobility from 2nd of July (I was already in receipt of lower rate mobility (DLA)) for 5 years!
This was not the exact result I was going for but I believe it would be churlish of me (maybe even fool-hardy) to go for a Mandatory Reconsideration!!
I don’t think it will sink in properly until I have the official paper in my hand and I cirtainly won’t be ordering my Mobility Scooter until the money is in the bank!
But in the mean time I can sit and dream and be pleased that I have got my result!!
Take Care all and thank you for your support and advice through this long and worrisome process!
