    Hi Laura. Wishing you all the luck in the world with this. I myself know what

    Your going through. My PIP changed to basic rate and no mobility after I informed them I now have MS. Did the MR same decision. Put in appeal and it was accepted by the HMCTS. Just waiting for the date if my tribunal hearing now. Which I've been told will be September.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    I'm aorry to hear this. Most MR decisions remain the same so most people so have to take it to Tribunal, sadly. If you have more evidence i would advice you to send it with your appeal letter/form. Tribunal waiting times vary depending on where you are in the country but be prepared for quite a wait. Good luck.

    Hi,sorry to hear that , but I think if you submitted enough evidence I think they wouldn't stop it ,asthma doest count .back pain you need a report and depression without social worker its slim chance it's the Tories they are cutting ,but if you are under the mental health and have enough evidence from the  hospital maybe

      I'm sorry but you're wrong by saying asthma doesn't count. It's not a diagnosis that gets the award it's how your condition/s affect you daily. It's totally different to DLA. Having plenty of evidence to support a claim will most certainly help anyone though.

    Hi,

    Wow Denise, that does surprise me. I knew it was about how your disability affects you, rather than what it was.But I didn't realise that asthma was an acceptable illness for claims for PIP.

    I have for the last few weeks been getting my case notes and evidence together, not called to go from dla to pip yet, but waiting and I have noted my asthma down among other things, just as well.

    Mike.

      It's not about asthma being an acceptable illness, it's about how it affects you daily. This is what a lot of people fail to understand. If you have difficulties in daily life and you can prove that those descriptors apply to you with evidence to back you up then there's every chance that you'll be awarded PIP. If you can't prove that they apply to you then you have very little chance.
