Waiting for PIP tribunal
I have chronic Osteo/Rhumatoid Arthritis. This has got worse over the last 4/5 months. I am under the hospital and have had shoulder surgery to try to help with the pain. I get Pip and mobility standard but definitely should be on the enhanced rate. I am one point below both. Am waiting for a tribunal hearing date, the reason i am going to tribunal is the lies the assessor told on the report were disgusting and they ignored everything they were told by me and my carer. i cannot walk more than about 3 metres with having to stop for at least 10 mins. They said i can walk 50 metres with an aid. I wish. It went on lime that the whole report. When i phones them for a reconsideration the man said he had osteo arthritis but no where MBB ear ad bad as mine and he got a fab car and doesn't have to worry about paying for anything. This is why i am going to tribunal. Sick of the way the DWP treat us.
