Hi I'm currently preparing for my tribunal I'm just wondering if I apply for high rate will they offer me low rate if they think they think I'm to healthy for higher rate or will they just say no all together

    Whether you're awarded anything by the Tribunal will totally depend how your conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activities against the PIP descriptors and what evidence you send to support your claim. No one on an internet forum can tell you whether you'll be successful or not.

    You don't actually apply for any rate. Your job is to show the tribunal that you meet the descriptors for an award. How well you do this and how you fit into the descriptors and the level of the impact your condition has on your life should determine the points awarded. This in turn will determine what if any award you receive.Look carefully at the descriptors as you make your submission

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
