PIP query : Contacting DWP
Hi, could anyone give me any guidance on a PIP query I have please.
I have been on the daily living standard rate for 7 years now and nothing for mobility (4 points).
At the time I think I should have been awarded more daily living and mobility points, but I was too anxious to question the outcome and settled for what I was given.
Now my mobility has got worse due to Atrial fibrillation (a heart condition) and I rarely go out now due to breathlessness and my previous mobility walking issues, and neither myself or my wife drive.
I know I need to contact the DWP to inform them about how my mobility symptoms have got worse, but I worry that they might re-assess me and take my current award away, or review my award later on if my Heart condition improved and I`d end up with nothing.
I just feel like I need to contact them but worry about the outcome.
Thank you for any thoughts or information on the matter.
