Many have asked the questions relating to PIP Ongoing (light touch) awards.

I have mentioned here a few times the DWP are and have giving Ongoing PIP awards for standard rates now.

My reckoning the DWP is taking this approach is in fact cost cutting, and if claimants does have a standard award for say DL, Mobility, and then getting an Ongoing award why I see this and does so the DWP, their way of thinking is they the claimant won't do a MR or Appeal.

Thus saving money maybe in the long run.

As many will know if you do a MR you could end up loosing the lot. Basically it's a game of chance. 

I've suspected for a long time, and read many others having standard rates and getting an Ongoing award.

Here is a classic case here I've posted below.




So you see if if you decide to challenge it? You could loose it or get higher rates, I believe many will be happy with what they received.

A little regarding the Light Touch at 10 Year.

    Here is another case that? A part of a PIP award, was for a standard award of daily living.

    So it proves all a long claimants are in fact receiving Ongoing awards.
