    Maybe that has something to do with it?
    Yes I thought the same, they must have a lot of extra work with having to go back through so many claims -and then normal claims and reviews on top.
    I want them to hurry up with the MH review decision, butthey can take as long as they like with the other review- I'm dreading it. Well within reason, as I need there to be enough time for them to decide before it runs out.

    I was surprised when someone rang two weeks later and actually agreed and increased his award to 10 years.

    I also asked about the loss of his mobility award, she said she'd look into it. Another surprise when she rang me 20mins later and said she agreed about that as well! she awarded him enhanced mobility for 10 years!!.

    I was very surprised to say the least!!
    I haven't been around for awhile. You are the first person I have heard say thst they got a 10 year award as did my daughter. I am really pleased for you and your son

    Needs prompting to be able to undertake any journey to avoid overwhelming psychological distress to the claimant. 4 points

    I thought that the dwp were changing the law with regards to mental health problems? I know you have to score 8 point for mobility but to get the other 4 points needed still seems as though the dwp are keeping the goal posts as wide as possible?
    The only changes in law that were asked for is that some people with mental health could never get the Enhanced rate of Mobility as the highest they could score was 10 points. So only the 10 point descriptor is expected to change to 12 points. That is all, as you got 4 points the change does not and will not affect you. The only people it will affect are those who scored 10 points on the descriptor, and received the standard rate of Mobility, should be given 12 points and moved to Enhanced Rate of Mobility.

    This isnt how I understand it, it said online that they will now take OPD into account for all descriptors, so someone who got 4 points for prompting, may of been given that because they needed to be accompanied, the assessors guidelines stated this. So that person 'could' then qualify for 12 points in the review.

    I am very curious about how this will work out, as I was given descriptor e at tribunal in 2017 after being refused pip in my transfer from dla in September 2016, both myself and dad explained the difficulties I have making journeys unaccompanied, regardless of it being somewhere I know or somewhere I don't, we was convinced that I wouldn't qualify for the mobility section of pip, but would the standard care part, it turned out to be the complete opposite 7 points for care, just missing out and 10 points for mobility

    Mobility points for mental health seem to be a bit of a lottery. I can't leave the house alone, but both times only scored 4 for "needs prompting". I won't be part of the review cases though as the first time was before the law change and the second time, though I only scored 4 on the MH side of it, I got enough points physically for enhanced mobility anyway.
