I went to CAB on Friday and they filled in my PIP form for me which I signed.
They also sent a lot of evidence that I produced which the girl said was very good.
We spent 2 hours doing the form but at the end of the day it seemed to boil down to one question which was at the end and was based on how far I could walk.
The girl from CAB said in order to get enhanced rate I had to score 12 points which meant I could only walk 20 metres without stopping. I can actually walk 20 - 50 metres most of the time.
What is the point of spending 2 hours filling out the form if the decision only really rests on the last question?
Do they not take anything else you have said into account?
The girl also said that if I appealed and had to go to tribunal the CAB could not put me in touch with a local Welfare Rights Officer who could represent me.
I had to go to tribunal many years ago when I lived in Co Durham and they took my DLA away from me. CAB put me in touch with a Welfare Rights Officer who represented me and I got DLA back.
Why is that different now?
