Hi I’m pretty new to this I’m waiting for a decision from pip regarding my claim so I requested a copy of the assessors report for me to keep at home. Everything said in the report is accurate and by the looks of the report I should be getting some help from pip. My question is can you get standard daily living rate with the enhanced  mobility or will it be standard for both or enhanced for both? I only question this as I know I have scored high on mobility due to my issues. If anyone knows weather dwp usually go with the assessors report also that would be nice to know. Thanks in advance

    Yes, you can be awarded different rates for either daily living and/or mobility. Some are just awarded daily living or mobility. 
    The assessment report is a recommendation only. The only person that can score you points is a decision maker. Whilst they do mostly go with the report it has been known for them to go against it. 
    Decision timescales are anything up to 12 weeks, sometimes longer.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I am going through the pip process I have mild CP, fatigue easier I have broken down task. But waiting for report sent to.me to view so I can challenge if necessary. But it's sounds as though I am not severe enough. It doesn't matter to them that I am so tired I have sleep when I have a pap. I have no life I sleep, work or sleep. I am an OT so I know how to answer questions. I still waiting for the report. I just need a little help that's all to help me to continue to work for as long as possible. I have managed to reduce my hours to 30 HR which helps.
