Hello everyone, Today I received a message saying I had been awarded P.IP.   I am now waiting for a letter of confirmation. I do not feel anything much, I know I did not convey my illness properly in the telephone quiz!  I do not think I will get enhanced rate,so I still will not be able to pay anyone for the help I need. After reading about other people I feel vile and ungrateful.  Sorry! What an introduction! xx

    I don’t think you can predict anything until you know what that decision is. You can ring them to ask or just wait for the letter, which can be anything up to 2 weeks to arrive. 
    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.

    Hello @Echo25

    Congratulations on being awarded PIP. It's such a difficult process and I bet it does feel a relief, did you call them and ask?

    Thanks, that's very kind of you. Once you know what that decision is if you're not happy and think it's possible to score more points for a higher award then you can challenge that decision by first requesting the Mandatory Reconsideration. (MR)
