Update to Tribunal Win

edited January 24 in PIP, DLA and AA
Just as an update for anyone following - I found out I went from 8 points on both to 14 on Daily Living and 22 on Mobility! I received my letter a few days after I had the phone call with PIP, I was shocked I got so many points on Mobility especially as most of my issues stem from ME/CFS and POTS and I am aware it is difficult to get many for Mobility due to the nature of the illnesses.

If anyone would like a breakdown of the points I scored please let me know :)
Mum of one, I have M.E/CFS, POTS, Central Sensitization Syndrome and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome.

    Well done laurapeach
    Did you go to a tribunal? Or was this the result of a Mandatory Reconsideration?

    @laurapeach That's a great outcome and just goes to show how effective your evidence must have been.  Well done you!  Thanks for letting us know.
