Dwp have scored my mobility too high
good evening, this is my first post, I’m like a rabbit trapped in the headlights here. I’ve received a letter from dwp, an interview under caution, from fraud compliance. I’ve read my application form that I submitted last October, and I can’t see anything wrong, other than my mental health wasn’t looked at, but I didn’t think they looked at mental health. I ticked the box saying I couldn’t move more than 50 metres unaided. I’ve received enhanced rate since 2017 after having major abdo surgery which has left me with mobility issues. I’ve had two medical assessments as home. I’ve been very stressed, my mental health and dark feelings have got very bad again. I’m seeing a solicitor who will come with me, for free. Sorry for long post, but I’ve just gone over my letter from dwp with a fine tooth comb, and on the letter, about moving around, it says I cannot move more than 20 metres and not the 50 metres I’ve stated on my form, so, dwp have awarded me 12 points, I never knew to question it, until now, I just looked on the internet about points, and it looks like I should just get 10 for moving around, however, if they’d taken the anxiety I suffer when planning a journey, I would have got some points. I’m not sure what to do. I have a photocopy of the form on my iPad, so I can take that to the meeting. I’m scared I will get into trouble, even though it’s not my error. I would be very grateful for any help. Thank you xx
