    HI and welcome,

    It sounds like your PIP award was a lower award than your DLA was. Did you request the mandatory reconsideration for the claim? If you didn't then when was the decision made on your PIP award?

    Hi @DRAGLINE and welcome to our online community.

    Just so I better understand what you're asking, are you saying your money went down by £100 when you transferred to PIP?  Did you ask for a mandatory reconsideration if your award was lower?

    I've moved this post to our PIP, DLA and AA discussion board, not to confuse you (!), just so its in a good place for others to see.
