Last march19 my wife scored 0 points at her pip review, we had to travel  over 30 miles for this. Today she has been told she is entitled to the standard rate of daily living previously she got the higher rate. It's been back dated to match last year . I have been looking at this website ever since my wife lost her award, so don't give up with your appeals.

    [email protected] Sorry just saw your post, great news after such a long wait, I’m currently waiting on word from my MR I had previously been getting standard daily living but ran out in February, middle of April I got word back got no DL and got standard mobility so hoping it can change at MR if not it’s the long rd to appeal.

    Hi thanks for your post, our Mr wasn't successful but taking it to the tribunal was . I think you have to keep going with your claim  until they stop listening. My wife got her letter today with confirmation of her award and over a year of backdated money she is well chuffed. They only awarded her 9 points for daily living component but that was just enough by 1 point to receive the 57.30!a week.
