Had letter today with decision on pip which the assessment was done at home on the 3rd January, they have awarded me standard care and standard mobility, absolutely gutted i was on high rate care and mobility, i have only been given 2 years as its changeable which is rubbish, i have COPD which is'nt good and spinal degeneration which causes all sorts of problems, i will lose my adapted car making me housebound i have no family to help i don't know how i'm going to manage.
With the mobility the assessor did not ask me any questions relating to how far i could walk or problems i had walking,the DM has assessed i can walk 20-50 metres which i can't not without pain and breathlessness, they said because i can walk into the doctors/pharmacy from my car this constitues 20-50 metres, laughable, where i park its about 10 metres and that does me in, so how do i go about MR, she did not see me walk only from the door to the chair which is about 2metres whichleft me breathless.
Just one more query my pip starts on the 15th february with payment on the 8th march but my next DLA payment is 1st feb will i loose that payment.
