Hi, looking for advice, I received my decision from PIP, I was awarded daily living standard rate, but I was on DLA mobility high rate, PIP only scored me 4 points, I have osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, thinning of bones, hip replacement three yrs ago other hip to be replaced next year. I also suffer pain in right leg & calf due to restricted blood flow from general artery. I rang DWP to disagree with there decision. I have to send letter stating why I disagree with decision. I have contacted Citizens advice bureau about this, they told me to send letter to DWP. Citizens advice bureau said if refused they will help me plan appeal. Anyone else been through this process. Thx

    Yes, lots of people go through the same thing. They will look at the whole award again and not just the mobility part. Only 17% of MR decisions change. CAB are right, you need put the request in writing stating what you disagree with and where you think you should have scored those points. Remember, PIP isn't about a diagnosis, its how those conditions affect you daily. Good luck.
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.
