    Hi @jblackmore

    The community has a benefits advisor that you could talk to :)
    Also, if you have a look on our 'Support and Information' section and scroll down the page, there is 'Check your benefits' this section gives information on not just PiP but other benefits too! Also, it has a benefits calculator to work out what you could be entitle to.

    Hope this helps! :)

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with :)

    Hi, @jblackmore, and welcome to the community.
    Ami and I are not experts on benefits, but there are experts working here and I have no doubt they will be in touch with you soon to find out more. The benefits calculator Ami referred to is here: http://https//www.scope.org.uk/support/disabled-people/benefits/check?_ga=2.119995149.405444417.1517054923-1832321402.1513208436
    And anything you can tell us about your present circumstances would be of help.
    Warmest best wishes,
    Richard

    Hi jblackmore and welcome

    PIP is a non means tested benefit and can be paid whether you work full time or not

    no problem
    You need to score at lest 8 points for either section
    The first 10 desciptors are for daily living .standard rate = 8 points
    The last 2 descriptors relate to Mobility  standard rate     = 8 points

    I hope that helps

    Hi I received my assessors report today for PIP it's seems they have only awarded me 8 points does anyone know if this means I'm entitled to the standard rate and can the dwp decision maker go against the report?

    Hi,

    your question was answered on your other thread. https://community.scope.org.uk/discussion/63905/pip-assessment#latest

    Please try to keep to one thread. Asking the same question on multiple threads gets confusing.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
