Hi there, my partner is a lower leg amputee. Before having his op in September 2018 he was previously on PIP standard rate of mobility. After his op we requested a new pip2 form and filled that in and sent it back regarding a change of circumstances, the dwp received it on the 2nd of October 2018. He had his f2f assesment at the end of November 2018 . My question is, is anyone else a lower leg amputee and has been awarded the enhanced rate of mobility? Also another question, I have checked the bank today and he's received £116.60 from PIP but it's been over 15 weeks now since we sent the form off and the dwp received it? Does a change of circumstances review get backdated to the date you signed the pip2 form or from the desicion? Thank you in advance

    HI,

    Usually from the date you reported the change of circumstances. Remember the 3 month rule. You must have had the condition for at least 3 month.

    As there's money gone in, give them a ring and ask if a decision's been made. They open at 8. At the same time you can ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent. Good luck.

    So does the 3 month rule mean that for the first three months after his amputation he wouldn't be entitled to anything? Sorry I do already know a desicion has been made as I called at the start of this week and they told me to wait for the letter to come in the post. And I have already had a copy of the healthcare report aswell. But thank you 😊
