New PIP review

So I was awarded PIP standard daily living on October 2022 
due to having problems with my back which was found to be a prolapse disc, struggling with work they decided to get rid of me due to no improvement ( I assume this was the only reason I got the daily living part ), I now also have been diagnosed with sacroiliitis April 2023
so I’m wondering if I can be reassessed for it as I don’t want to lose PIP as it now a needed source of income for me. If so would there be a good chance of me getting mobility also as I’d only had scored 4 points on it. This was a telephone assessment. Thanks

    PIP isn't awarded based on any diagnosis, or your ability to work. If you report any changes now you will be sent more forms to fill in and return with all your supporting evidence. Another assessment is most likely because most people have them.

    Before reporting changes you need to be 100% certain that you can score enough points needed for a mobility award. It will depend on how far you can walk. No one here can tell you whether you could score enough of points because we don't know anything about how your conditions affect you.

    Once a decision is made your award could stay the same, be increased or you could lose everything you already have.

    My advice is to speak to an advice agency for some expert advice. https://advicelocal.uk/

    If you no longer work do you claim any other benefits like New style ESA or Universal Credit?



    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I have recently applied for esa this week I sent off my forms which I am now awaiting my assessment, as it stands I can’t claim universal credits due to my partner that works full time. I am unable to leave the home unless my partner drives as I struggle to walk around, I can’t do a normal weekly shop as an example. Also can’t do basic task such as tidying up the house or cooking a meal from scratch

    This sounds really difficult for you @B23kpa1n. Hopefully, you will receive your assessment soon. How are you feeling about everything at the moment and would anything help you with this?  :)

    Every day to day tasks are a struggle, which is annoying due to being able to do this with ease before. Being out of work is starting to take a toll on my mental health, I have still been trying to look for work to keep my mind busy. Not sure what help I could receive so anything is appreciated
