one point short of daily living.
I have been migrated from DLA to PIP was on middle rate care and low mobility DLA, got standard mobility in PIP and one point short of Daily care.
As I am in N irealand I will get something called a welfare supplement which basically means I will get 75% of what I got on Dla for a year under pip and then it reverts to the usual pip payment.
I know that I can ask for an MR and think I should have scored more for mixing with people only got 2 for prompting and encouragement, but as I have social phobia my partner always helps me and supports me by coming with me most of the time, was at assessment as well. I don't have a social life of my own, only go out with my partner.
Even the assessor said on report that I have severe social phobia.
I think I should have got 4 points for social support, but there you are just 2 for prompting and encouragement.
I'm really mixed up as to what to do, and I have to take into consideration that I will get 3/4 of what I have lost for a year the welfare supplement which is unique to N Ireland.
I know that statistically speaking MR usually stay the same, but has a chance that I could loose the lot. So on balance I am thinking maybe I should take what I am offered as I will get 75% of what I got on DLA for 12 months under pip.
Your opinion as to what you would do really appreciated, though its me that has to make the call.
