Case 1 had my pip reduced from enhanced daily living to standard in dec 2018
my mobility payment remained unchanged at standard 
I went to mandatory reconsideration. 
No change so went to a tribunal which is booked for next month

Case 2 however in may this year I went to another medical as my condition worsened 
I was increased to enhanced daily living with mobility unchanged at standard 
I am awaiting a mandatory reconsideration 

what happens at my appeal hearing for case no 1 if they  keep my award the same ?
or  give me enhanced for both components 

does the  separate pip awards cancel each other out

    Hi,

    The Tribunal will be for the decision made on case 1 and up until you put in for a change of circumstances. For example, if you're awarded Enhanced for both parts then it will only be up until the date you rang to report the changes.

    The decision made on case 2 will overrule case 1 Tribunal decision.

    Hello
    @poppy123456 is right. The date on which you reported the changes in circumstances will be taken into account. Best of wishes! Keep us updated too.

    Thank you
    my sincere thanks 
    as case 1 would only get me any increase from 14th feb until 5th April 
    7 weeks 

    case 2 was awarded from the 5th April  so as you say case 2 would over rule case 1

    i think it sensible to cancel the tribunal on case 1

    i have put in a mandatory consideration request in on case 2

    trying to get the 2 points req for enhanced mobility  awaiting this result 


    so any appeal to the tribunal if req 
    is best to do so on case 2
