Im new to this forum. Ive just gone through the horrid transition from high high dla To pip enhanced mobility. But standard daily living. However their were some very contridicting pointers the atois lady did put down. And as it was only 1 point away. I written in to highlight the mistake. However from receiving my results first phone last monday. Brown envelope yesterday. I received a standard letter from esa just telling me theyd received information. And just telling me how much id be getting. Im in support group. But have yet have not had no face to face assesment. Anyone got any information on why this might be. Thanks.

    HI Suzy, i'm not sure i understand what you're asking. I rad you're claiming PIP but were 1 point away from Enhanced daily living and you get Enhanced mobility. If you haven't already done this you'll need to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration if you're going to chalange the decision.

    Your ESA, so you're currently in the Support Group. Did you have another ESA50 form to fill in? If you did, did you fill it in and return it.

      Hi yes sorry if wasnt clear. I firstly have been on esa since april. And after 6 wks received a letter to go to a assesment centre. My doctor faxed them to say I couldnt go. They excepted this. Said would be in contact. Ive heard nothing atall since. Only the normal letters. So was curious as have heard if in support group and pip assesement was late 2016 going into 2017. I would nolonger required to. However you dont know what to believe. Yes I have written for a reconsideration into daily living. I most definately shouldve scored more then 11. As said mobility scored 16. I should be grateful. But she has answered a few questions utterly wrong. And luckily for me in her own report as brought up herself I have issues with medicines. Yet scored me 0. Which I know as got me onto standard. Hope thats clearer. Its the first time ive joined any group of this kind. But theyre very useful.

      Being in the Support group doens't mean you won't ever need another assessment. It would depend how long you've been put in there for. The max amount of time before assessment that anyone can have is 3 years. They'll send you another ESA50 form when the time comes. Fill it in like you did last time, send in back along with your supporting evidence. They'll decide from there if another assessment is needed. Some have paper based decisions, some don't. I personally wouldn't worry about it now. Concentrate on your PIP MR. Good luck with that and hope you don't have to take it to triubunal appeal.

      Yes thankyou Denise.I think my nerves after playing the waiting game after the whole Transfering to pips took its tole. Its not nice. And to be onast after the written consideration. If fails as is 1 point and im highlighting only 1 mistake on hear. Rather then a few. As its worthy due to her own admissions. I wouldnt put myself through a tribunal. I will make sure next time around im more aware of their intentions the lady seemed lovely(yet made a few mistakes). But Ive read some upsetting storys. So wont be so gullible in 2019 as runs out 2020. Esa I,ll ring monday. Conflicting information ive been told. And read. But theyll get the same evidence as pip did. But thankyou for your reply. I found these groups so helpful. Beforehand. Anyone ever wants advice regarding pip facetoface meeting. Your welcome to ask.

      My husband was moved to PIP a few weeks ago. He had the assessment at home and although he has had his condition for over 20 years and Consultants agree it can only get worse, they took his Mobility points away completely and gave him lower Daily living allowance. There were many mistakes in the report so he applied for a mandatory reconsideration and they agreed he got no mobility and also took away his living allowance. He doesn't get ESA either.

      Its wrong in many ways. What I will say is this whole process though. Will most definately catch out the ungenuine ones. Not only do they question you. Proof from hospitals. Consultants OTs repeat pescriptions are needed. As if they meaning the ones assessing you disbelieve you. Most appeals would see with their own eyes whats been going on. Id say to anyone with very little proof. Be ready for a bad result. Its very important to gather all your evidence. I was asked when the last admission was to hospital. I could see the lady comparing notes. They want people to be put off by the scare mongering. I would say to anyone genuine whom like me and others thatve already been through this process dont give up. And goodluck.

      In our hospitals some Consultants will send you a copy of the letter to GP, but others don't. Our GP practice stopped doing letters for anyone a few months ago. They have said they can see patients or write letters for patients but not both. This means my husband has no recent evidence.

      Sorry Lynne I dont know why but I didnt see the comment regarding your husband had a reconsideration then lost all?? Is that what happened.? I written and asked them to look at 2 questions regarding daily living. I scored 14 mobility. 11 daily living. I had alot of proof and sadly my disease is also degerative. Im sorry thats happened. And If I were in your position id take it to an appeal. Goodluck.

      Also lynne. It must be an area problem as ive always had copys of letters sent to my doctor via consultants. But Also OT did a risk assesment recently. However Thats my case. I think its all wrong. And you can infact pay to get your entire medical file. Cost varys. I was looking at my result being bad and looking at all options. And this I did check.
