    They will obviously refer to your PIP application/assessors report and medical evidence. They will be looking for an explanation to why you believe you were not awarded more points for certain descriptors. They like continuity they don’t like inconsistencies.

    This will obviously be connected to your illness/disability and how it affects you. You need 8 points for standard care and 12 points for enhanced. Mobility is the same 8 points for standard 12 for enhanced.

    You haven’t posted your condition or how many points you scored at assessment so it is hard to predict what they might ask you specifically.

      I'm not think for the care component when when I spoke to capita about why my assessment was cancelled date only day I could do this at any time always out assessments over the last 12 years but this time none was given so now I am going to tribunal I have all my medical history from the last 25 years to present date which DWP did not take any notice . Feel like they are thinking that I am lying about my condition they are taking pi??😂

      Have you up to date medical evidence? The DWP usually want information which is less than 2 years old so if your reports are dated longer than this then some assessors will ignore them.

      I'm not judging you just trying to explain how they work. Your condition is one where you were severely disabled for a period of time but due to 'therapy' your condition improved. Now their thinking is that this improvement has continued and you are now at a position where you no longer need extra support via PIP.

      This is why it’s so vital to inform the assessor if your condition is irreversible or the treatment/therapy has reached its limit and will not improve your disability any further. If this is the case then you need an up to date report stating this from a medical professional.

      Thanks for that information but if I did have an assessment maybe I could of told them that I have had four operations on my knees in the last three years because of the way I walk waiting for my appointment at the spinal injuries clinic but I have not received one yet so maybe this tribunal will take place before that and I will have to try again next year

    Please keep us updated, I'm also going to a tribunal for PIP, as I have Crohn’s Disease and not worked for 1.5 years. I scored 0 points.
