Hi, my name is amyangelfish!
Hi I wondered if you could help me. My daughter has recently started at a residential school. At the same time I had to apply for PIP as she is now 16. We have been awarded enhanced level of care, but no mobility which I am contesting. PIP have also told us that she cannot have any PIP money because she is in a residential school. I will have to claim back the money for holidays and every weekend that she is home for the Care component of PIP. Is this correct? Also if I manage to get them topay the mobility component, which quite frankly they should, does she get to keep this bit? I read a ruling from 2013 that the mobility component was not affected by being in a care home or residentail school but wondered if any other laws have been passed to supersede this? Has anyone had any luck appealing the mobility decsion, or the decsion to take her care component away because of the rsidential school factor? Thanks
