This was our client’s first application for PIP after having to finish work due to a deterioration in her health condition. It took the DWP five months for a decision to be reached, in which they awarded her 0 points. With our expert assistance she appealed this, as she was unable to care for herself and was reliant on her daughter care for her. After waiting a further eight months for a tribunal hearing, a decision has now been made in her favour awarding her the Standard Rate of the Daily Living Component. This will also award her a hefty £3000 in back payment. Another roaring success for our brilliant benefits team!
