I applied Pip for my husband , and got pip for daily living with 8 points. But for mobility they award him just 4 point . I request for reconsideration , and got decision was the same and gave the right of appeal , I am still thinking should I go for appeal because I don't want to loose daily living allowance for my husband who is already sick. Just in case if appeal get refused . I just want to appeal for his mobility needs. I will not ask them to look into daily living again. I want to know in this case what will happen next ? Will the allwonce will be the same or they will totally stop his Pip ? So confused , any good advise please. Thanks

    17% of decisions are changed on MR. 69% on appeal. If you want to know the likely outcome then get face to face advice but a tribunal is effectively rehearing the claim from scratch so there’s no way of predicting an outcome without proper advice.

    The tribunal will look at the whole award.  However, if they are thinking of reducing or removing the current award, then almost certainly they will give you an opportunity to withdraw your appeal.  If you then do withdraw your appeal,  your husband will keep his current award.

    When i appealed my mobility award i stated that i was happy with the daily living award and the evidence i sent in was just about mobility 
    When i attended my tribunal i was not asked any questions about daily living and the result was the points were left the same and mobility increased

    The position has moved on. It’s now accepted that both components are up for grabs.

    That sounds reasonable. The Tribunal stands in the shoes of the DWP decision maker and therefore should look at the whole claim from afresh.
