Hi all I have a phone assessment on the 27th January 2021, due to covid, I have hip osteoarthritis in both hips, and have done for the past six months, I thought because of the statement I gave the assessor over the phone I would get pip because of all the things I physically can't do no more, got my decision back got 0 points on everything, I can't drive because of my condition but apparently I drive an automatic car, I can cook but told my daughter does the cooking, told them I don't leave the house cause can't manage it, but apparently I do, I've put in appeal just to to wait and see what happens

    Hi @Popdiva43
    So sorry to hear you were awarded no points.
    I also have osteoarthritis in my feet hands and currently waiting on 2 knee replacements.Also a few other issues.
    After my assessment I received 6 points for DL so no award, I was awarded standard mobility,
    I sent some records from my doctor from the consultant at the hospital she also wrote a short letter.
    My mobility was changed at MR stage to enhanced.
    I was so grateful for it but felt I was due DL to so went to appeal.
    My daughter sent in a letter stating everything she needs to do for me and how she felt I was coping or more not coping.
    Sorry for long post I just hope your award is also changed. 
    Good luck and take care.
