Reinstatement of Enhanced Rate of PIP

Just opened a letter from the DWP today and found they wont be changing my rate of PIP from when it finished on the 19th of Jan, which was the Enhanced Rate, though for some reason havent paid my usual ESA  as they normally would but is probably just a database error again on the phone to them to sort that out and get them to reinstate the Severe Disability part of ESA as well.

Really so happy I can't believe they did that as I though if anything they'd just say the Standard Rate of PIP

    Great news @jsmith8899. Did you manage to get the issue with your ESA resolved? It could be that when the PIP decision fed through they've paused it to reassess premiums etc.

    Yeah really thought I wasn't going to get it at all since were a few things I missed out by pure accident, did make notes about various things in the run up to the telephone assessment, though were a few minor things I may in a way disagree with stunned completely the rate stayed the same.

    Be good when I get the SDP backdated as well and the ESA will go back to how it was before, really happy all in all of course, was incredibly lucky the assessor liked to according to her take time proper time to do assessments was really great
