Was rejected for pip more than a month ago. Too late to appeal. Can I reapply?

I have a hip dysplasia which I have had since birth and wasn't treated correctly then. In the past 3 years my symptoms have gotten worse and I have just had another x-ray last week which has confirmed that it is worse again. My rejection for pip letter came through on the 7th October which means it's too late to appeal. Am I able to reapply with my new worsened so. Thanks

    Hi @samso85, welcome to the community!

    Sorry to hear that your first application wasn't successful. If you think you're eligible and your condition has worsened, it might be a good idea to reapply, with updated evidence too. You might also like to check out these PIP FAQs. Let us know how you get on and whether you need any guidance with this!
