good afternoon, I have recently been told my DLA is being reassessed for PIP. I have re evaluated standard for help with living needs,a component I wasn’t receiving under DLA even though for the past 7 years I’ve been advised to do so, I satisfied myself with full component for help with getting around,with great gratitude.i have received that benefit as motobility for the last 6 years,on receipt of this decision I informed pip of my intention to ask for mandatery reconsideradion by telephone approx 5th February.2018 after the first month I sent in evidence of disability.i have received  that response today 29march2018 dated 22 March 2018.
that is my brief intro to my problem
