just back from my tribunal for PIP, and happy to say I was successful, my daily living component has been increased, to the enhanced rate, this was purely down to a mistake by my assessor, which was also missed on my reconsideration, even one of the tribunal,made the remark'how could they miss that' to another tribunal member, I have also been awarded standard mobility rate which is a little disappointing as I had full mobility with DLA, but overall very happy with this decision, I did however see on the notes of the tribunal decision that the DWP can actually appeal against their decision although I can find no evidence anywhere that they have actually done this in the past, although I did find the whole thing reasonable relaxed, I still felt that some of the questions were designed to catch me out, all that remains now is to see how quickly they increase my payments, after all they were very quick to reduce them
