hi just got my reward letter and confused by the comments. 2 years ago at initial pip review I was awarded 12 point for mobility and 8 for daily living.
this time I have the same for mobility ie 12 points but only 6 points for DL. The interviewer states that she thinks I can dress and undress unaided and I lost 2 points as I’d previously been marked as unable to dress or undress 2 years ago. The report just says “I decided you can dress or undress unaided”
i dont understand how how she came to this conclusion, at interview I was 8 weeks post total knee replacement which had gone badly wrong and I’m even less able than I was 2 years ago.
whilst I’m not desperate for the daily living pip, I have used the monies to get work done in my house and garden that I’m not able to do anymore.
i just don’t understand how she made this conclusion, my wife and sometimes kids very frequently help me dress especially socks and shoes.
I felt at the interview that she talked at me a lot telling me how she thought I was and was happy if I agreed but when I disagreed she’d say well that’s not how we take the information down.
is it worth appealing?
