edited March 2019 in PIP, DLA, and AA
hi I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 12;years ago.  I was in receipt of DLA and in time changed to Pip when I was awarded the higher rate of mobility and care allowance.
i was awarded until December 2018 but was notified in January 2018 that I would be reassessed at home late that 
i was awarded one point below he enhanced care ate and 2 points below the higher rate for mobility.
i appealed but lost and in time lost my car and the person who came in twice a week o help me with daily living.
i now have to go to a tribunal at our local court to fight my case.
people who have parkinsons know that stress does make your condition considerably worse and I know I have deteriorated over the last year.
it has been 32 weeks since I heard from the tribunal and still no date set
