    I am just preparing my form to send off a first time.
    Do they give reasons if they decline offering PIP ? 
    Are there any tips one should know for filling in the form in beginning ? 
    Any help and suggestions greatly received 

    Hi,

    Are you appealing a PIP decision, or is your claim a first time claim? Sorry a little confused by your question because this thread is about a PIP appeal.
