Why are PIP and ESA descriptors different?
I am due to have my PIP face to face very shortly.
I am concerned after providing a large amount of medical information, having 3 spinal operations,
The doctors and physiotherapists say there is nothing further they can do, leaving me in constant pain.
I won my ESA appeal for mobility, after my solicitor from Citizens advice used case law GL V SSWP 503, which states if you are in constant pain then the mobility aspect is covered and 15 points is awarded.
However with PIP they do not accept this case law, according to NAWRA they claim PIP descriptors are taken from the ESA descriptors so why is this not the same and the mobility aspect of the claim is covered.
