    Hi and welcome 

    Sorry your post is a bit confusing 

    Pip awards are 
    Daily living at either standard or enhanced rate 

    And mobility at standard or enhanced 

    What we're you awarded? 

    Was it a first time claim or a review and if it was a review what rates did you get before the assessment 

    If you give these details we can then advise

    Hi @lyndaj12 - & welcome to the community. If you were awarded only one part of PIP (?daily living component), you would have been paid that amount. Since you put in a Mandatory Reconsideration (querying the mobility component?) & your points went from 4 to 10, then you now have also the standard rate for the mobility component. Is that correct?
    As Jane asks was this your first time claiming for PIP, or a review?
