I got my PIP decision letter

Hello everyone

Hope all is well, and enjoying weekend.
Since my last post, I got my PIP decision, and scored 0 on all descriptors. The DA literally disregarded everything  I'd said. 
So ! After a lot of stress, I spoke with my Well being and Support worker, and she went through each descriptor again with me.

She's kindly put together a letter of support, for my MR.
So fingers crossed, with my additional evidence, and her letter, I may be hopeful.
I'm not holding my breath, but can only try.

Thanks for all advice so far, its very much appreciated

    Sorry about your PIP claim @em444 - everything crossed for your MR. Kindly let us all know how that goes. :)

    Sorry to hear that and good luck going forward. I am waiting for my decision and I swing wildly between hope and despair! The waiting is the hardest part, as Tom Petty once said.

    Thanks for reply 🙂 
    Do you think the letter from my support worker, will definitely have some Impact  ?
    Never done MR before.

    Good Luck with your MR. I moved over from DLA and got 0, same on MR but as soon as I submitted an appeal (no extra evidence) the DWP phoned me to say I'd be getting Enhanced DL and Standard Mobility (better than nothing!), keep up the fight!

    A letter from your support worker can only help. you need in your MR to point out where you didn't score points but think you should have, giving some real life examples of when you tried to carry out the descriptor but couldn't and why you couldn't.
    Good luck @em444

    We did exactly that
    So she's listed the descriptors, and written examples
    The most unbelievable bit, was when she asked my Intetests. So, someone with Anxiety and Depression, seeing a Psychiatrist, and has approximately 2 hours sleep a night. Can go to the Theatre, watch Ballet, go to concerts and Art galleries and Antique Fairs  ???
