    Hi covman and welcome

    There are many horror stories on the forums but there are many more successful claims that we never hear about

    DLA and PIP use very different criteria for awards,PIP is more about functionality rather than condition

    The first thing is to understand the points system, descriptors and the criteria for an award. A good starting place is the self test on the B&W site

    http://www.mybenefitsandwork.co.uk/pip/indexxx.php

    There is also loads of info on this site. Please have a look around and come back with any questions

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
