    Hi @AFB welcome to the community and I am sorry to hear you have had such a rough time, best of luck with your mandatory reconsideration.

    Thanks for your advice. Just contacted the DWP PIP department yesterday and found out that they awarded me the standard rate for daliy living but none for moblity. I'm happy I had some success at the mandatory reconsideration stage. I will be appealing further to the tribunal stage regarding I should be receiving enchanced rate for both daliy and living. If I appeal to tribunal I will carry on receiving my current award that has been awarded.
