    Hi Chris,

    it means that the award will run for the next 10 years, having said that the DWP will contact you qw months before then to start the ball rolling oncce again. 

    You say that your mobility was reduced from high to low, is that because your condition improved or just the assessors opinion.

      Sorry Chris, that should say they will contact you 12 months before 2027.

      That is the assessor decision , they also took my standard care if me, it seems strange to me that they take payments away but agree my condition is ongoing that's why they give it me for 10 years which proves that they have to refuse most to draw back money, anyway my Mp is in my case and going to tribunal

      When I was changed over from DLA to PIP they reduced my mobility from high rate DLA to standard rate PIP. My condition is worse now & it will never get any better. I find it hard to understand how the assessor can decide that the award I was given for DLA which was high is now standard PIP. I scored 10 points & you need 12 points to be awared the enhanced rate.  I feel as though I should  ask for a mandatory reconsideration but have read that I could end up with nothing. Scaremongering at its very best.

      I was changed over from DLA to PIP last Thursday.  I had a face to face assessment & then 2 weeks later was given the outome. At least I only had to wait 2 weeks for the assessor to make the decision.  I have read that it can sometimes take months.

      I know a lot of people say that you run the risk of losing it all, but can't you get your MP involved.  It is quite obvious that your condition will never improve and  If the MR fails then you can take it appeal and from what others have said, the success rate is quite high.  

      Have you sent for the assessors report, I sent for mine just a couple of days after the F2F

      Yes I've got welfare rights to represent me in court and I've got my Mp to challenge pip they given me it for 10 years so they are admiring I'm not well, just goes to show how ruthless they are

      I have not sent for the assessors report, it never crossed my mind to do so.  I will phone tomorrow & request a copy of the report.  It will be interesting reading of that I am sure.

      What it will tell you Mary, is where the assessor has not been right about how your condition affects your everyday life.

      Yes, that will be right. One minute you are on the high rate & the next reduced to the standard rate. I am seriously debating with myself whether or not to ask for a mandatory reconsideration but with the scaremongering going on I am very reluctant. I would hate to think that I ended up with  nothing.

      I can understand your feelings Mary and obviously no-one can advise you which way to go, but even if the MR came out the same then I suppose you are not losing anything.  Do you think your health would stand up to an appeal. Maybe leave making the decision until you see what the report say's.  I do believe though that you only have 28 days to apply for an MR, so let's hope the report arrives quickly.

      I don't think I could go through an appeal.  It was bad enough to go through the face to face assessment & then have to wait for the outcome. Mental cruelty springs to mind. I will wait & see what the report has to say & remind them then I have a limited time to appeal. Hopefully the report will come in time for me to read it & make a decision if I wish to appeal.

      I totally understand Mary,   having no choice about transferring from DLA to PIP is extremely stressful, I was in bits filling out the forms and the day of the F2F was horrendous.
