My PIP decision maker said he had changed the descriptors. Does anyone know what this means?
Hi just wondering if someone could advise me, my son has ADHD and was on high care and low mobility DLA when he was 16 he migrated to PIP after the face to face ( which was all lies) he came out with 0 points . It went to mandatory reconsideration but wasn’t changed. It went to tribunal and we were awarded 27 points ( the judge couldn’t believe it had got this far) we got it for 3 years back dated. The three years was up so we were told we had to make a new claim, this time I had new evidence, things were worse, my son was diagnosed with ASD, in face to face I took a witness to take notes, but she assured me she was there to tell the facts. I received my decision we have gone from 27 points to 6 ????? She has told lies again. And to add insult the decision maker has stated that he would not of expected me to know from the information provided that my pip would change. Yes it has changed but for the worse not better. He also sad he had changed the discriptors ? Does anyone know what this means .
