edited March 2017 in PIP, DLA, and AA
High all,
my neighbour was looking through my form i have my home face to face next week yes rhere was a mistake i missed out a word BUT it does show it doesnt go with what has been said elsewhere.
I can (missed out not) walk without stumbling and falling. 
Ps i use scooter outside

SHOULD I GET MY HELPER TO SAY STRAIGHT AWAY TO THE ASSOR WILL THEY MAKE NOTE OF ERROR or will this go against me. My writing not too good on form also.

    I think this needs to be noted somewhere on the DWP records, in case you end up having to explain it to a tribunal.

    There is nothing to stop you mentioning it to the assessor, and this shouldn't count against you, but I would not consider this a reliable method of making the point to the DWP, and would recommend also sending a letter in explaining the error and emphasising that this IS something you struggle with - once you've sent the letter I would also telephone 10-14 days later to make sure they have it.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
