    Hello @jeff62 and welcome to the community.

    Based purely on what you have said it is a possibility. You can use the pip self test to see what you may be entitled to at http://www.mybenefitsandwork.co.uk/pip/indexxx.php

    Please be aware though that the assessor may not see it the same way, and you may need to go through the mandatory reconsideration and then appeal to get it.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hello jeff and welcome

    How far can you walk using crutches ?
    Most of the mobility descriptors take into account the use of aids such as crutches. For the enhanced rate

    12 e. Can stand and then move more than 1 metre but no more than 20 metres, either aided or unaided. 12 points
