    It is correct. It is because of court decisions that the rules were particularly unfair to people with mental health conditions.

    Hi,

    It's the following and planning a journey part of PIP that's being looked at again. If you're claiming for physical condition then your claim won't be looked at again.

    If this descriptor applied to you when you were awarded then there's no need to contact them, they will eventually contact you with a decision.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
