    Hi there 
    Sorry your claim was refuded
    There are lots examples on here same as yours whi have gone on to win 

    Have a look in the PIP section 

    Ask if you have any questions

    You now need to request a mandatory reconsideration, sometimes that does the trick but be prepared to take it to appeal, might be an idea to speak to your local welfare rights.

    Hello @nicoleleex and welcome to our community.  I'm sorry to hear about the outcome of your PIP decision :(  

    We have definitely come across examples where people have initially got zero points and then gone on to be successful after appeal, but it's highly dependent on individual impairments and how they affect people's ability to carry out the PIP activities

    If you visit the Advice Local website and enter your postcode, selecting 'Welfare benefits' from the drop down list, it will provide you with a list of free, independent organisations close by who could help you if you choose to proceed to a mandatory reconsideration.  

    Please let us know how you get on and good luck.
