Only Awarded Standard Mobilty for PIP
I just got my letter from DWP about my PIP claim and to my suprise i have been awarded the Standard rate for both Living and Mobility. I was expecting to stay on Higher Rate mobility like i am with DLA but lose my living component. I never expected to lose my higher rate mobility especially as they are saying i scored 10 out 12 for how little i can move but 0 out 12 as i can plan a journey. To me that does not make sense that despite not being able to phyically go somewhere i still lose money as i can plan the journey. The justification for this decision was i was not anxious during the assessment and do not have therapy for my PTSD and am only on one medication for it. While i will only lose 10 a month , it is the fact i will have to buy my own mobility scooter and may lose my blue badge when i reapply next year that will cause the biggest problem!
