I won my PIP for mobility
Hi I won my PIP for mobility and they backdated it for 18 months it was at the standard rate as I had been waiting to go to Court for nearly 2 years and they tested me on the two years - the Judge was great very understanding but the Doctor was evil asking silly questions (he thought he was Judge Rinder) and told my partner to shut up. He wanted to explain to me what he was saying as I could not remember some of the things. They could not test me on now as the claim was 2 years ago so when the Judge said he was sorry but the next time I should get the higher rate. Just go for it and don't worry and if you cannot remember just say you can't that is the best way to do it. Any way good luck to all who are trying to get PIP and keep trying don't give up as that is what DWP are hoping for. Thanks for listening Jan
