Hi there, I was in receipt of DLA for over two years awarded indefinite high rate mobility and middle rate care. I recently had my pip assessment and scored only 4 pints in the daily living only. I have a chronic fluctuating health condition. Having read the benefits and work guides on DWP guidelines for HP's carrying out assessments it specifically states that the assessment should not be made based upon just a snap shot of the person on the day. Yet from reading my HP assessment it would appear she has based her assessment on what I was able to do on the day. Surely this contradicts with having difficulties for at least 50% of the time to qualify, and how can spending just one hour with someone when there are 365 days in the year give an accurate indication of someone's difficulties unless of course someone has specifically stated their symptoms are present all of the time. I find this utter nonsense as well as appearing contradictory. Can anyone give any insight to this. Would be much appreciated.
