    Loss of Mobility points.

    Hello
    I received my DWP letter today advising me of my PIP award following the F2F. I retain the living part however I no longer get the Mobility part. I have been awarded 4 points, last time it was 10. Nothing has changed in my condition so has the points system goalpost been altered?
    Should I appeal the decision or accept it?
    Thanks

    The points haven't changed so this looks like a difference of opinion on the effects of your condition between this assessor and th eprevious one. Since you had 10 point s last time I would consider asking for an MR and if necessary appealing. Get the assessor's report so you can see why they awarded 4 points and make your argument for an increase.

    I have the local Disability Advice Service in my corner, I'm sure they will love to do that for me.... I will give them a call on Monday.

    The advice center beat me to it, they are really on the ball and called me, advised that I request a MR and they will take it from there (which I did at once)..bless them.

    Best of luck - hope they change it without you having to go to appeal.
