Hi there people. I wonder if anyone can answer this question. I was receiving DLA with mobility component for over 10 years. (Liver cirrhosis, spine damage and severe depression). I had PIP assesment last month and have been given the basic PIP and have lost the mobility component.
I am not going to appeal it as the stress of the whole business drives me nuts. Since I reached retirement age 2 years ago I was also able to claim pension credit (65£ weelkly). What I want to know is if I will also lose the pension credit due to the new PIP award. Thanks in advance for any replies.
