    Hi @lavinia - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. PIP reassessments have been suspended for 3 months from 24th March, so it will be some time before this happens & you get a decision. Will your council not accept the points you currently have with PIP?

    Hi @lavinia and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm sorry to hear of your present situation with your blue badge and PIP and I hope you manage to get it all sorted out.  You have been given very good info/advice already by members so I don't have anything to add, but just wanted to welcome you anyway.  Please let us know how things go and I wish you all the best.  :smile:
