I am on daily living pip I know I have asked this question already but if I phoned would I get more points as I have panic attacks and payment increase?
Hi,For PIP you need to have had the condition for at least 3 months and expect it to last at least a further 9 months. As you've only been experiencing those attacks for the past month or two then they won't be taken into consideration yet.Once 3 months have past then you could report a change of circumstances for your PIP but i'm afraid it doesn't automatically entitle you to extra money. More PIP forms will be sent out to you, which you'll need to fill in and return with all your relevant evidence to support your claim. You'll then most likely have another face to face assessment because most people have them. You do risk losing everything you already have by doing this. A worsening of condition doesn't automatically entitle you to a higher PIP award. After those 3 months if you're still experiencing the panic attacks then you'll need to get some expert face to face advice from an agency near you to see where you could score those extra points for a higher PIP award. It may not be possible to score extra points for a higher award. Do be aware also that the 9 month rule will still apply.Have you spoken to your GP regarding your panic attacks?
Can I get any other benefits? I went to the job centre yesterday for my commitments but it was a bit pointless going to as they thought I didn’t have a job and asked me where had I been looking on what websites for jobs, they didn’t realise I am employed but long term sick, and I said I’m due to see my manager soon as I had an occupational health assement Tuesday then she will decide to keep me or dismiss me on ill health and when that happens I have to go on my journal and report change
