PIP update

Hi not too long ago I had a pip assessment. Then after 2 weeks I got a phone call to say I will get pip but she could not tell me what rate over the phone. I couldnt believe it, I couldnt wait to recieve the letter. About 10 days later, got the brown envelope which said I am awarded standard care component and I got high mobility,, this has been a long 6 years of not giving up. I was refused DLA twice with pathetic excuses. In the end I lost my job and managed on ESA only. So pleased the way PIP has gone for me, hopefully more of you will qualify. Just dont give up, I nearly did but im so glad I carried on. Its going to make life so much more manageable. And my stress levels are lower now. Would still rather be better but this will help me so much.

That is good news hope it comes early in 2015 for you . I had the assessment at home three weeks after a letter saying they have all the information and I am still waiting to hear the out come. Fingers crossed it is the right answer for me!

Happy Christmas
