Hi all i would just like to tell you about a positive PIP application. I have Ankylosing spondylitis and wasn't aware that I could apply for PIP as I am working. I was redeployed in work 3 years ago, off the last few months and reducing my hours when I get back to work. Hoping that i will still be able to work for the next couple of years before i will have to take ill health retirement . I applied for PIP ,asked for and got an assessment at home , asked for the report ( I'm in northern Ireland, thanks to the advice from you guys ). Today I got a letter to say i was awarded enhanced in both and the back payment will be put into my bank account tomorrow! This will really help as I struggle daily and will now be able to get a mobility car as I struggle to get in and out of mine . This was my first PIP application and have been awarded for 3 years . Thank you all as I gained so much from this forum !!
