Assessor said I had full mobility

I am registered disabled due to spinal problems, such as 3 bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, nerve damage and perminant sciatica due to the bulging discs.  I have major problems walking and use a wheelchair due to pain. I presently get only the care component of PIP as the assessor said I had full mobility due to aids, yes my mobility scooter I went in on, she also stated I could go on and plan journeys on my own, I never go out on my own as I can fall when walking and can't get scooter out of car on my own. She was a joke just a data inputter in my opinion, I didn't appeal it as I was worried about loosing it all.  She asked me to do some exercises and when I said I couldn't her report stated I refused.  The system is so flawed.

    Hi @sharonmabey

    Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing your experience. That sounds terrible. Unfortunately many people have written on here about similar experiences.

    So you haven't asked for a mandatory reconsideration? It sounds like you would have a good case, but I can understand feeling nervous about losing everything.

    I just didn't have the energy to appeal. Perhaps when it comes up to the review I might do it

    So sharonmabey did you end up with any points at all or come out of this with anything money wise?   Shocking, oh why and when will the government do something about this a.
