A PIP result

I had my PIP interview 2 weeks ago, and I got my result through today.

I'm on standard rate for mobility and enhanced rate for living, a step up from the old DLA.

What changed it, I don't know. It was cancelled twice in Carlisle, so I had a home visit. If anyone want to know more, just ask.

Not all over as yet, the ESA is due at the end of the month.

brilliant news. Am pleased for you. Hopefully you will be equally successful with the ESA. I found the PIP forms better for explaining bi than the DLA ones.

Carrie from A Chance For Life helped me. She is helping with the ESA as well.

Also other info from benefitsandwork.co.uk, it cost about £20, but seems to be quite good.

Yes I found the Benifits and Work guides very helpful too.

Hi MartinWindcheetah, I live in fear of these forms due to being useless at answering the questions. I'm due a reassessment for ESA and the DLA to PIP change-over is an ever lurking menace.

I've tried to fill out a sample PIP form but my answers seem vague at best.

Do you have a method to filling in these forms ?

Glad you got a good result.

No, not really, I didn't expect to get such a result, as I felt that mine were a little vague, as well. I think it might have a lot to do with who you does the interview with you. If you have a particular question, I can tell you what I put down.

I would say good luck, but that 'of course' has nothing to do with it!!

steve55 hi, after a search I've failed to locate the specimen form you mention.

Is it a Benefits & Work form ? If so I already have it. thanks.

hi MartinWindcheetah i have my pip assessment at home in 2 weeks i was just wondering you say your now getting standard rate for mobility and enhanced rate for living, may i ask what were you getting on dla as im getting low care and low mobility on dla and don't know what i will get on pip if anything (hope i get something or we will be homeless in a few months as my dla pays my rent).
