I have been recently awarded standard care for PIP, even though i should of also been awarded enhanced Mobility due to not being able to go out on my own. i also was 2 points of enhanced care, and all because assessor wrote about toilet aids i use but failed to put it on descriptor. 

I am thinking of putting a MR in but i do have have concerns about current award and the payments i am yet to receive. if i try and appeal my award and they look at it again, will i lose all current payment. or will they continue to pay at standard rate while i appeal

    You will continue to receive your current award until outcome of MR.  Whatever MR awards you, you will continue to receive this until outcome of appeal hearing if you decide to appeal.
