Surprised and grateful

Have just heard from PIP and been awarded a monthly payment. Thought I would have a fight on my hands. I leave work in December and this will help enormously. I can't drive very far these days so will help towards taxis to and from the hospital. Feeling very relieved.

I'm so pleased for you Ellie, it'll be a useful buffer for after you leave your job. If you don't mind sharing can you tell us what were you awarded? I ask as there seem to be fewer of us being awarded mobility, myself included, because of the 20m rule. I appreciate it is dependent on needs/ability but some have been unfairly knocked back. Thanks. x

Sorry, I meant either daily living &/or mobility really but that'll do, thanks, standard daily living..... better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick eh?!

So pleased for you, great news. This will make things easier for you and not to rely solely on hubby. Onwards and upwards, happy retirement.
