Change of circumstances

ShaunHShaunH Member Posts: 28 Connected
Hi, wonder if anyone can help?
I reported a change in circumstances due to my mobility worsening not one thing had changed on my daily living component.
I was awarded enhanced Rate for daily 
an no award for mobility back last year.
I have had my decision letter today and they have decreased my daily living component to standard along with upping my mobility to standard rate components.. 
my question is how and why they would change my daily living component when that wasn’t part of my “change in circumstances” 
thanks

    HI,

    They look at the whole award again and not just part of it unfortunately. If you're not happy with the decision they you have 1 month from that date to request the MR, if that fails then it's Tribunal.

    You need to state where and why you think you should have scored those points. Adding a couple of recent real world examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you. Stating who was with you, where you were and detailed explanation of exactly what happended.
