    Hi Pearl. I did half of mine online with someone at DWP if I remember rightly... I think CAB  Citizens Advice Beaureau can also help too.

    @pearl52, Suggest you check out the PIP points system online. Choose the one's that apply to you and how your disability affects you. Then fill in the form describing why you should qualify for the one's you've chosen. Stick to this all the way through during your assessment and you'll be one step ahead of the assessor. Try to get as much medical evidence as you can from your surgery and again match that to what you are telling them. Remember the reliability factor that if it takes you more than twice as long to do something then that counts for points. You need to also decide whether you can do something on your own with aids or if you need help from another person. Describe what help you need and why...x

    Both Disability Rights and CAB websites PIP sections give detailed advice about applying for PIP.
