Would I have to have an assessment to get standard rate mobility?

I just had a ESA assessment , i am hopeful of getting  the support allowance ,scoring on mobility. I know i will not qualify for PIP on the daily living allowance , but think i would get 8 points for mobility . Would I have to have an assessment ?

    You will almost certainly be assessed

    Yes very highly likely you would be sent for the face 2 face assessment. It's extremely rare not to have one. Evidence will also be needed. ESA and PIP and totally different benefits.

    You will be assessed even if you get 0 points!

    Heard that I am now on ESA support allowance, Therefore I have gone from zero points in APRIL last year to having loads of points 12 months later . Last year I had a letter from Podiatry agreeing that I could not walk more than 100 metres , which should have given me 8 points. They even provided a taxi . The assessor lied on the report , giving false times , ie,  was able to remain seated. Which I had not , having to move from seated position at least three times . Despite having medical evidence of a neck and shoulder problem , was told I could  MOBILISE in a wheel chair . Its a lottery  if you get a assessor with a any sort of  conscience .
