PIP paper based report arrived
This is my first PIP assessment and I have to say there are many areas I would disagree with their scoring on, but it seems utterly futile to contest it as I have scored 21 for care and 12 for mobility so I assume that if carried through by the decision maker is adequate for the enhanced for both elements.
My big concern is that they have suggested a two year review. I had hoped to get a motability specialist vehicle to transport me which would be pretty life changing, however, with a two year review where there is the risk for some (any) reason they might pull it, I don’t feel confident committing to a five year contract for a costly Wheelchair accessible vehicle.
They do however say, they expect the restrictions on my mobility to be present at the next assessment.
Not sure what to do now to be honest... obviously it’s pending the final result of the decision makers but assuming it goes as usual this will be my circumstance to navigate. Any advice? Thank you ?
Just a regular dad and husband, was active global travelling board level business executive, who had fought cancer, then suddenly struck down. Became severely incapacitated. Chronic pain, lack of muscular control, cramps, fasciculations, muscle wasting etc and so much more on this 14 months of abject misery so far.
