No PIP care component, epilepsy
Hi, Just recieved pip assesent, no care, high mobilty award. 2-3 gran mal seizures per week, no warning. I thought the weighting of the 50% rule was being reduced in favor of safety. There was no mention of safety but the 50% rule was quoted. I’m not going to appeal, too afraid of losing the mobilty component and can’t wait a year for a risky tribunal. I was moving from DLA so have lost half the money i was previously getting.
