    That indicates potential entitlement to enhanced rate of both components, @sam12 . However, there is a big difference between an informal assessment, even one by a welfare rights professional, and actually demonstrating entitlement to those rates to DWP (or a tribunal if relevant).

    With benefits it is never best to 'count your chickens' - just concentrate on making the best case that you can. As one of my law lecturers, a practising solicitor who regularly takes cases through the courts, used to remind me, there is no such thing as a guaranteed win. I thiink I'm right in remembering you have an upcoming Tribunal, for which I wish you well if I memory is correct.

    We do all have different difficulties, you’re right @sam12. I understand why you might find it hard to talk about your mental health at the tribunal, but it’s important you do. The tribunal panel aren’t there to make you feel ashamed, they see lots of people with various conditions including a range of mental health conditions. 

    Did you attend your last PIP tribunal?
