Are there any benefits specifically for enhanced living, or standard mobility?

I've had my PIP upgraded from standard living to enhanced living, plus I've been awarded standard mobility (previously no mobility awarded).
Are there any benefits that I can now claim, based specifically on these two changes to my PIP award?
Thanks a lot for any comments.

    What other benefits (if any) are you claiming exactly?

    For the mobility part if you scored at least 8 points in the moving around part or 10 points for following and planning journey for activity 1E you will be entitled to a Blue badge.

    You may also be entitled to a disabled persons bus pass but you'll need to look at the criteria from your local Authority because they all have different rules. 

    If you have a vehicle you will also be entitled to 50% reduction in road tax. road-tax-50-reduction

    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.

    Thanks a lot Poppy!  My other benefits are ESA (income based) with the severe disability premium.  I'm also getting about 75% off my council tax bill.

    No problem. Then your ESA will remain unchanged. Sorry, I can't advise about council tax reduction because all Local Authorities have their own rules.
