A few people have said they expect to lose their Motability Car because they scored (the inevitable) Zero Points from their medical assessment.
THIS MAY BE WRONG
In April 2017, the benefitsandwork website published a report stating the following:
"Penny Mordaunt, Minister of State for Disabled People, has announced that disability living allowance (DLA) claimants who lose their right to a Motability vehicle when they are assessed for personal independence payment (PIP), will be able to keep their vehicle whilst appealing." (Follow this link: benefitsandwork.co.uk/news/...)
This looks hopeful, and is supported by a (rather more complex) statement (Follow this link parliament.uk/business/publ...)
Of course, these statements were made about eighteen months ago. So the questions are:
a) is it correct that they can't take away your Motability Car while you're waiting for the Mandatory Reconsideration or Tribunal decision?
b) how does this work (as in, do you need to contact Motability or do anything)?
As losing your car is very traumatic for those affected, I'll try to find more information this coming week. Meanwhile, does anyone have up to date information to share.
