I have just been given Standard living & mobility pips rate. I am diagnosed as a Paraniod Schizophrenic I am under a Consultant Psychiatrist and see a Community Psychiatric Nurse every 3 weeks. I live on my own but am visited by my Brother every day and night. My Brother thinks I should put in a Mandatory Reconsideration as he thinks I should be on the Enhanced living rate of pips but I do not know what to do as I risk losing the Standard rates I have been awarded by requesting a mandatory reconsideration. I would appreciate any advice offered on what my best option is?
