Social Support Question 9

Hello, 
 
Thank you for letting me join.

I am wondering if someone can tell me if they think I would still be awarded 2 points for ‘Mixing with other people’ based on my report (this is originally from Jan 2020). 

I have also included a copy of my renewal (written in pen) from 2022. The renewal entitlement letter said they had reviewed all areas again and felt the points were correct but I have raised an MR in January as I feel I should be awarded 4 points at least for this question. 

I am very embarrassed to post my papers as my depression and anxiety are so awful. Please don’t judge me. 

I have ensured no personal information is on my uploads. 

Thank you.

    Would the extra 2 points make any difference to your award in 2020 and 2022?
    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 need one more point to go from standard to enhanced. I’ve been on PIP since 2020 and always on the same rates. One point off enhanced. 
    I put the MR in in January and was told I’d hear back by 26/03 but they said they’re running 2 weeks behind x

    Hello, just want to update. I called up and they escalated as waited over 8 weeks. 
    I was affected by the change in law and I am owed £7,000 which should be with me tomorrow. I am now on enhanced daily living

    I'm really upset with mine. I now have to wait until my review later this year to increase if I can. Despite my CAB worker sending it in time, the DWP timed us out by 24 HOURS. :( No comebacks.  They claimed a letter went out on 06/03 - after five weeks ,it arrived today. Fuming and my CAB worker has told them so. 

    I've started the reassessment process with my UC LCW though to upgrade that.

    Glad to hear you got what you needed @disneyprincess!

    Sorry you're still trying to sort yours though @Sparky3683, sounds really frustrating :(
