Thread: PIP reassessment

    PIP reassessment

    Just thought I would let you know about my reassessment after being awarded enhanced PIP Daily living and Mobility until March 2019.

    I received my letter as expected and sent it back by the due date. To my surprise a phone call came from someone at DWP 6 weeks later, asking if I could spare a few minutes updating them on my condition. I was told that the enhanced rate would still apply, they just wanted a "baseline" for future assessments. I was told that the paperwork would follow within a week.

    To my surprise it arrived 4 days later, enhanced until 2021. So not all bad news.

    Great news Nina. I hope mine comes back with a good result. Had text from DWP this morning to say they received report from HP.

    Good news!

    Am hoping that the same happens for me as my illness is never going to get better only worse sadly.

    Same here. Having been awarded HR living but no mobility back in 2016, my illness has now reached the stage where I am looking to buy a wheelchair.
    I have re-filled all the forms in a desperate hope that I get the mobility component this time around.
    I have a degenerative disease that only worsens, never improves
    So hope I get the mobility side without full reassessment, as I sent in so much recent medical "evidence" from all my specialists, and moving around now is so difficult

    Good luck to Joss, Trev, and guardian.

    I will just add that the only paperwork I sent back was. The shortened version of the questionnaire that I received and a letter from my doctor which I wrote out and asked her to copy. It saved her time and she didn't charge me for it as I had done all the work. Luckily we have a great relationship, and she must have agreed with my wording. It definitely helps to have a good healthcare professional onside'

    Good luck to you all.
    Nina

    i just sent back the form where they ask you to tick, ie: same,worse or better etc. Got my letter a few weeks later stating my information on the form was compatible what they had on record and i don't need ftf assessment and awarded me another 3 years.
