    Hi,

    Yes you can be awarded Enhanced mobility by scoring points in both descriptors of the mobility part. Usually they go with the report, it's rare to go against it. You will have to wait for a decision to be made to know for sure. Did you add the scores for the daily living part as well?

    Has anybody had the same experience when they’ve got the copy and then got their decision letter and they’ve been awarded the higher rate? Iv been waiting 7 weeks I know they have a back log. Just impatient!

    No problem. As i advised, they mostly go with the report, it's rare to go against it. I've had 3 reports for PIP and the decision went with the report every time.

    There's no timescales to decisions. Backlogs is just part of the reason a decision can be delayed. Christmas would have extended that waiting time.

    Yes I totally understand it does take time for them to get through them all. 
    Oh really, so it’s likely from what Iv worked out is what I should receive, 
    im
    hoping Iv worked it out right!x

    Absolutely, in my 3 cases the report that came with the decision letter both agreed - 0 points!

    Yadnad, 0 points? It’s been suggested that Iv totalled 14 on mobility? Or do you mean you’ve reicived 0 points?

    Hii got my report back yesterday and I think I may of scored 0 too? Not sure how.. The assessor has answered all my questions with the answer A.. But then wrote things down in there that I do need help assisting with food and washing etc, I don't no how she has answered all my questions with A when some of my answers refer to D and so on.

    It’s beyond a joke when the report outright contradicts itself. 

    For or several points, my report took words out of the criteria, agreed I couldn’t do them, but I still scored 0

    really is a shame. Have you not had a decision letter just yet?

    I am hoping the decision maker goes off the information in the report and not the ticked boxes the assessor has done. I hope you end up getting the outcome you want

    Or sorry to hear that

    I think it’s the not knowing that’s driving me insane, I don’t want to loose it all together but I also need the mobility so I guess the points don’t really matter on the report as the can change it like fibro Princess said?

    Hi Jess I've heard that they go off the points on the report, but do you not think so.? I would like to think that they may take into account all the information on the report and not just the points that my assessor has done as they just don't add up with the comments she has written in my report. I hope it all goes good for you:)

    It is a ridiculous system, I have Fibro but I also depend on my partner/carer for my medical treatment as it involves needles. 

    They ignored all all my conditions and focused on my anxiety. 

    They even downplayed that ?

    Hello hayles123 I believe they do but I have read in other comments that they still disregard them and apply there own points? If they do it means I will get full mobility and care as I score 14 and 20 but as someone has already said they’ve got the points on there but when the decision was made they scored 0? 

    Im sorry to hear that fibro, so what is your next action?

    It's rare for them to go against the report and they mostly go with it. I've had 3 PIP reports and all the decisions went with the recommendations in the report.

    Argh right ok thank you guys. I just really don't understand how the have scored me A in all the answers witch means I am capable of everything but in her paragraphs she has written there is evidence to say that I need help and prompting to do things, and when I done the pip test online I score at 14 for the daily living. I am going to ring and complain about the assessor
