Pip moving from DLA help
Hi everyone i got a lifetime award in 2009 for low mobility DLA. I am 66 and got my assessment at home 2weeks ago, I have depression anxiety and I wet myself at times through aniexy. Im on medication for all these problems. My GP recently refered me for more support. Today I got my pip assessment report it appears I have 10points for standard care. But 0 for mobility this is despite the report stating I only leave via taxi and never go on buses this is in part due to a lot of sexual abuse and violent men him my past I just don't like men who I don't no. I also though don't no if this will be the final decision? Also if I appeal would I move onto the standard care or stay on low DLA while this is ongoing? It says my condition may improve in 18months well I've a 40Plus year history I can't go through all this again at my age and don't no what to do
