May I ask I I recieved mobility points using aids or appliance more then 20 but no more then 5o states I don’t go out the house due to pain an falls , but did tell  Dwp this happens occasionally when I’m in swear pain an swelling but they written u know longer go out the house ( this was when swelling was really worse ) I did call them let them know but untill today I heard no response 

but know I do go out my house 3/4 times due to doctors advise fir walks  but I can’t do it repeatedly but if I do honour by evening my pain an swelling becomes severe an other household chores become hard to do.

any advise 

Recently got my decision an it’s incorrect they stated I don’t go out my house but I do …only when I’m in really horrible pain swelling I don’t go out an u use aids to mobilise around home

Any advise what I need to do

    Although you don't often go out, if you're claiming PIP for physical conditions then following and planning a journey doesn't apply to you because this applies to those with mental health, cognitive and sensory impairments
    For descriptor C which is what you previously were awarded scores 8 points. Descriptor D what you've been awarded now scores 10 points. Both will qualify for only standard mobility because you need 12 points for Enhanced.
    In this case it really makes no difference because it's still standard mobility regardless of which descriptor you scored points in.

    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.
