    I had an assessment over the phone on the 2nd of March, and today I phoned the pip telephone number and the automated response was that my money has reduced by £40 a month I'm  unsure of the results of the assessment, as by the time my migraine had gone the phone lines were closed ,I haven't received any text or letter confirming anything, has anyone got any ideas, please

    Hi @Anthonymark - & welcome to the community. You've had your assessment only fairly recently, & it can take anything from 2-12 weeks to get your decision letter. The automated phone responses have been known to be sometimes wrong, so try & just wait for your decision letter. If the decision is not as you hoped, you can do a Mandatory Reconsideration (best put in writing), where another decision maker will look at everything again.
    Let us know how you get on.

    Hello poppy, I was awarded pip for the living component for four years from March this year, although my rate has reduced from enhanced to standard and my motobility component has been stopped hence the car has to bereturned, the questions in the assessment are all wrong, not one  of the questions represented my mental wellbeing or motobility in the written report they say I can get up comfortably and walk 200 metres (I can't remember when I last walked 200 metres)but aside from that it was never about my physical ability in my case it is coordination and orientation I walk up the street about 100 metres and I'm so stressed out its like I'm intoxicated I get completely lost and after a member of the public to help me home as for the living that's so long I can't type it today its all stemed from my childhood and the fact I have around 1000 personalities if not more I'm lost as wether to ask for a mandatory reconsider if its not bad enough that my mental health is totally wrecked then the dwp start telling lies just to save money, well the only thing I can say is stop my Money and make me better please

    If you’re not claiming for physical conditions then the moving around part of mobility will not apply to you anyway. 
    You would need to look at following and planning a journey for the mobility part.
