Hi everyone just a quick question I got awarded pip standard daily living but no mobility i definitely don’t agree with this due to many issues but I’m just wondering if awarded the enhanced for both will it be backdated from when I first claimed or from when I got awarded standard daily living.. thanks in advance

    Hi,
    From when you first claimed, providing this was your first time claim and you didn't transfer from DLA.

    I hope that poppy123456's comment has been helpful. Do you feel confident in knowing how to submit an MR?

    So the decision maker called today we went through the points at the end of the call she said no decision has been made but kept on saying there is another appeal process if i don’t agree with it now I’m worried and rather stressed x

    They are correct to advise you that you have further appeal rights if you remain unhappy with the decision and they are supposed to do so.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hi @stacei I'm sorry your feeling a bit worried and stressed, but as you say, no decision has been made just yet. If you can, try not to dwell on it. Spend time doing things you enjoy, or that help you relax :)

    As calcotti says, the DM advising you about what to do if you're still unhappy with the decision is just part of the standard procedure, and doesn't mean things have gone one way or another. 

    Let us know when you hear more, I wish you all the best for a positive outcome, and remember we are here if you need us.

    Then your next step is to request the Tribunal. You may want to get some expert advice before doing this to check that you qualify for any mobility because having "too many issues" doesn't automatically qualify you. Start here for this and choose the topic welfare benefits. https://advicelocal.uk/ if you can get representation then even better.
