    Hello @tlehopkinson and welcome to the community. We're glad to have you with us.
    In fact your post just caught me - I'm on my way to bed - but I wanted to respond as quickly as I could.
    I am not a benefits specialist myself, but we have plenty here who are and they will respond to your post in due course. You won't be surprised to hear that PIP issues are a large part of our inboxes!
    Currently in West Yorkshire? I spent a lot of my life up there (and my wife is visiting up there even as I write).
    As I always try to point out, you've reached a safe place here and are among friends. You'll find a lot of people ready to talk with you about any problems or issues - or anything really - that are of interest to you. Just bear with us if you can.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard
