    Hi @maryd, and welcome to the community! So sorry to hear that your daughter didn't get the outcome you'd hoped for, unfortunately this is something that many of our community members have experienced recently.

    Have you considered appealing the decision? If so, take a look at this information on appealing DWP decisions and let us know if we can further advise you.

    Hi maryd and welcome

    Many people when changing from DLA to PIP are in the same boat. The criteria for PIP awards is different to those of DLA.
    The B&W self test is a god starting point to understand the system

    Hi maryd, 

    First of all you need to ask for a mandatory reconsideration, identify which of the daily living descriptors your daughter satisfies and try to provide some medical evidence to support the case. You can also ask for a copy of the assessment provider's report and see what they've said as you may disagree with some of the conclusions and you may want to point those inaccuracies out too. Good luck!
