    @ tickety66, your not putting anybody off, where you moving from DLA or was this your first claim for PIP.? If this was the later then you should have done a self test on PIP to see how you would fair for making a claim. Reading your post it sujests that you where able to do all the descriptors in the PIP acessment hence you not being awarding PIP.

    Exactly my experience too!

    I have had three face to face assessments in the past 5 years. Each time they gave me zero points. I had that changed at MR stage twice back up to Enhanced Care & Mobility. The third time I just gave up as the thought of these assessments at my age (70) at such regular periods (every 2 years) was too much to cope with.

    Unfortunately it is the end of the road for me with PIP. The third decision followed by the MR decision which confirmed that I am not entitled to any points was some months ago and is well over the 30 days allowed for me to lodge an appeal.
