My partner have recieved her PIP decision today, she has recieved the Mobility standard rate as she can't plan or follow routes without help due to her poor eyesight.
They have however refused her the Living componant due to only recieving 4 points. They have scored 0 on Communicating verbally, now in the meeting with the asessor she was struggling to understand some of the things asked to her and how to explain them. It was only because I was in there with her that she understood eventually after explaining. She also struggles to engage face to face with people but was given a 0 for that as well.
I think it was because I was in the room with her that these decisions have been made because she is more confident with me but still very nervous of new people. If she is on her own she is a bag of nerves and as I mentioned would not have been able to understand or communicate properly. She has had DLA since she was young (now 31)
What I need to know is what sort of things need to be in a consideration letter.
