    Hi @joellie12,

    This information is from the Citizens Advice website:
    When the DWP decision maker decides which descriptor applies to you, you'll get a point score for each activity. For example, if you can dress and undress unaided, you'll score 0 points for that activity. If you can’t dress or undress at all, you'll score 8 points.
    Your points for each activity will be added together. If you score enough points, known as the entitlement threshold, either for daily living activities or mobility activities or both, you'll qualify for PIP.
    For each component of PIP, you need at least 8 points to get the standard rate or 12 points to get the enhanced rate.

    Do keep us updated and fingers crossed for the outcome you're hoping for!
