    I’m sure Denise will be along in a moment but only if you feel it has worsen your ability to do things and you feel you meet the descriptors for high care or high mobility but be warned you risk losing the award you already have as they could reasses you lower. So you need to weigh up the risk. When are you due for a review? It might be worth leaving it until a review is due.

    If it has worsened then maybe you should but be careful as when i told them i had another condition they sent me for another f2f and they decided to take away my mobility and put me on standard Daily, i was getting high for both, and my condition has worsened. It is a risk you take, you may get rewarded more or you could face losing everything. Only do it if your condition has worsened.

    Good luck

    Hi,

    With PIP you must have had the condition for at least 3 months and expect it to last a further 9 months to even stand any chance of being awarded a higher rate. As you were only awarded the current award in February and 2 months later you have the blood clot then that time scale isn't long enough, i'm afraid.

    Once 3 months has past, would this problem continue for a further 9 months? Blood clots are treatable so i'd say maybe not. Before doing anything else this is what you need to look at because even if you did score those extra points, if this condition isn't expected to last for those 9 months at least then you will be paid any money. I've recently seen this happen. Not for a blood clot but for a totally different condition.

    Please think VERY carefully before reporting this.

      Hi,

      I think you misunderstood what Christinem has posted. She has actually been successfully awarded PIP but is asking about a change of circumstances that's recently happened. For PIP as i explained, you need to have had the condtion for at least 3 months.
