Anyone had success with the revision of previous claims of the question about planning a journey?

Hello, I hope this message finds you all safe and well as you can be. I am wondering if anyone has had success with the revision of previous claims of the question about planning a journey? I was told that 2 of my pip claims from 2016/2017, were being looked at again. This was in March or before, I’m sorry but I’ve lost track of time since all the lockdowns, days have just rolled into one. Lol 😊. But, I am just curious if anyone has had it awarded back to them, as I’m not sure, going by my own assessment and how the travelling questions were phrased, that people would be successful. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Stay safe and as well as you can.

    Hi @Jinty

    I hope you are well, and thanks for posting. 

    We get quite a few threads about the planning a journey descriptor, so you might find it helpful to browse the PIP category to see if you find anything useful. Otherwise, I hope others will be able to share their experiences with you :)

    I’ve only read about 2 stories of people receiving backdated money because of this.

    Thank you @ poppy123456, 
    this is what I was thinking it might be. The way my questions were asked about it, doesn’t give me much confidence in getting anything back. But, thank you sincerely for taking the time to reply to me. Take care and stay safe.

    I remember they looked at my award again between 2017/18 because I received a decision letter. Made no difference to me anyway because I don’t claim PIP for those reasons.

    I got a letter but mine was due to the change in law on safety. They stated that it didn’t affect my claims.
    I have disagreed and sent an MR in . Prob be about January before I hear anything.
