I Don't Know Whether To Celebrate Or What?

Had a shock yesterday.

Had a letter from DWP Re: PIP Yearly Update..

I realise it's blatantly obvious, I presuming that I have got P.I.P., and it is higher amount than when was DLA.

But was expecting ( and I haven't had a letter yet) a more informative letter explaining the award.

Also and I am ashamed to admit this but the Mobility Component. I was expecting more?

Spastic right leg and gout in left big toe, renders me virtually Immobile when I get this

Is the Mobility element a low rate?

The daily living amount is higher than the.Mobility, and really emphasised about my leg and walking problems.

But the letter in my opinion belittles my disability/leg/gout problems. 

Or should I keep shut?

I emphasise again I am extremely grateful for the ward (presuming I have read right( a bit of paranoia))

Also Under the old D.L.A., award I had my car tax paid as  part of my entitlement to D.L.A.,

I also get Bus Pass and Bl

Does this new amount entitle me to any future tax exemption?

If any of you could.please enlighten?
