    Hi Sue it sounds like an error on the letter as if you get between 8 and 11 points in total, you'll get for the daily living component of PIP at the standard rate. If you get at least 12 points in total, you'll get the daily living component at the enhanced rate. Ring them back it’s a free call. You are better ringing first thing in the morning. Tell them you would like a call back the same day if they cannot answer your question straight away.
