After being on a lifetime dla award, i changed to pip a good few yrs ago. When i transferred from dla to pip i was awarded enhanced rate for daily living, and my award for mobility was stopped. I had a pip assessment in sept 2018 and the decision was to end my pip completely. I asked for a mandatory reconsideration, and the outcome was, not entitled to daily living, but was awarded enhanced rate for mobility. The award was until may 2020, but i was reassessed early, and my mobility was reduced to standard rate from January 2020 still no award for daily living. I asked for a mandatory reconsideration and this didnt make any difference, i then asked for the decision to go to tribunal. I have a date in November for a tribunal by telephone. The advice shop who is helping me with my appeal. They have all my GP and Hospital records going back to the 1990's. The benefit advice shop have sent me a copy of the submission letter they have sent to the tribunal, but there is a part that i do not fully understand, could you explain for me in plain english? The paragraph is...."The decision in front of the panel today is not just to look at the present award, but also a previous award that is to be superseded dated 03/09/2018". When i lost my daily living award in 2018 my partner and i also lost our SDP, worth around £150 per week, we got this due to us both having been in receipt of daily living component with both of us being on pip.
