I think the fact I got enhanced because of this, i found it on the benefit and work website
"It’s taken a few years, but the law has finally caught up with Benefits and Work.
For once, however, that’s good news.
Because it means many more claimants with mental health conditions may be able to get an award of the mobility component of PIP, even at the enhanced rate.
For years we’ve been advising members that DWP guidance about ‘Planning and following a journey’ was wrong – deliberately so – and was leading to incorrect assessments by health professionals and errors of law by decision makers.
And for years we’ve been publishing a submission that members could download and include in their appeal papers, challenging the way that many claimants with mental health conditions were prevented from getting an award of the mobility component.
Finally, after conflicting decisions from different judges, a panel of three upper tribunal judges was convened last year.
The DWP continued to argue that anyone with a mental health condition who was ever able to go outdoors, even with someone with them, should score only 4 points and receive no award at all on that basis.
But the tribunal weren’t having any of it.
Last month they made a legally binding decision that claimants with conditions such as severe anxiety can qualify even for the enhanced rate of the mobility component, just on the basis of problems with ‘Planning and following a journey’, or ‘Going out’ as the PIP form terms it.
Having read the judgement, we’re pleased to see that arguments that we put forward in our downloadable submission, and the very specific evidence we used to support them, have been included in the judgement"
