Enhanced/standard

greatdanemiagreatdanemia Member Posts: 10 Listener
Following my successful PIP award I was given the enhanced rate for mobility but only the standard rate for care. 
PIP is the only benefit I qualify for .
To be honest I thought I could cope with the reduced income but because I have to pay for prescriptions/dental care/eye tests and glasses things are becoming tight. Constantly in overdraft and sometimes juggling food costs with medication.
Would I be able to seek a reconsideration on just the standard part of the award or not?
If I do go for the appeal does the money stop or not?
Thanks.
