Cystic Fibrosis – Part 2: Transfer from DLA to PIP 9

Update on my fight against DWP's decision on my PIP application:

It's been a whilst since I last wrote a blog in regards to my PIP appeal.

The tribunal came and I was very nervous. So much so that at first I didn't know whether or not I was going to be able to speak. However with the tremendous support from my Social Worker, I managed to answer all of the questions without much issue.

Both my Social Worker and I felt the tribunal went well. And whilst there's good news, there's also not so good news.

The good news is my score total for PIP went from zero points for daily living and mobility, to 6 points for daily living and 4 points for mobility.

Ok my daily living score was 2 points short for me to have the daily living part of PIP, but the main thing is I won points.

I am now in the process of reapplying for PIP, so fingers crossed that something comes from this.
