hi,i was on dla for over ten years,my claim was due to be reviewed in december 2019,i received a letter from dwp saying i would be going on to pip,i was on higher rate of mobility and care,this was awarded in april 2017,by june i had received a letter for a face to face meeting,they then decided i was only going to get standard rate mobility,then this year they sent me a form to fill in to see if my health had changed,i filled in the form and received a letter for a face to face,in this meeting i was asked many questions but none about my ability to plan and execute a journey,i told the lady of my ongoing mental health problems and gave her the name of my clinical psychologist who i am seeing on a regular basis for anxiety and depression,i received a letter from dwp stating that even though my condition mobility wise has worsened ,i could not get higher rate of mobility because the law states this.they are happy to reduce your payments and are always saying let us know if your condition gets worse then come out with any excuse not to pay,my claim is ongoing not a new claim,ii have a fear of crowded places and my wife has to accompany me if i go somewhere new or shopping,thank you for reading.
