If my benefit is reviewed would I get more or should it be incapacity benefit?

    Hi @mike1956,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    I've moved this into a category so other members of our community can offer advice and support. :)

    Just to confirm, is this benefit relating to PIP?

    Hi

    It actually came under industrial injuries...when awarded it was at 20% i believe its more now...ive had 4 further surgeries and now to have a complete knee replacement next week. The disability has never been reviewed as to capacity or increased incapacity

    Thanks in advance
