    Hi @Rubkin and a warm welcome to the community! Filling out PIP papers can be tricky but you have lots of people who have gone through it. You may find the PIP section of the Scope website useful. There is also advice on the Citizen Advice website. I am sure the community will be able to help as well :)
    If you need anything else then please do not hesitate to ask!

    Hi,
    Is this a transfer from DLA? or a PIP review? Either way getting some help from your local CAB or a similar disability advice centre maybe a good place to start. Don't forget to send your evidence with the form, they very rarely contact anyone for this. Good luck.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi there!! I hope these tips help you: 

    Get help with answering the questions on the form. Read the questions carefully before answering any questions. Describe your disability candidly to them. Include examples. Use any space on the form to tell them what you cannot do independently as well. Make sure that you send in any required evidence with the paperwork. Photocopy the form just in case. Find a guide online and use it to help you answer the questions properly. At all times ensure that you have provided enough information.

    Hi, I'm also a new member too. Thank you for your information it was really helpful. I still have a dilemma, I received my form last week to complete, then 3 days later I received a letter saying nothing changed and it had attached the points box. Feeling really confused, do I go to this interview.  I wondered if this had happened to anyone else.
    Thanks
