    Hi,
    It's the PIP award you need and not the assessment report. You need to ring PIP to ask them to send you a copy. To automatically qualify for a blue badge through PIP then you will need to have scored at least 8 points in the "moving around" part of mobility PIP.

    Hello @Margarettte

    The DWP contact number should be listed on your award letter. Call that number to ask for a copy of the report. 

    To be deemed eligible for a blue badge you must have scored at least eight points for activity thirteen which is the moving around unaided one. Look at these descriptors and see where you should have scored points https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/Global/Migrated_Documents/adviceguide/pip-9-table-of-activities-descriptors-and-points.pdf

    Good luck!

    Hi,

    I'm afraid you won't be able to request this online. Do you have someone that can ring DWP on your behalf? You will have to go through security but then you will be able to pass the phone onto them.

    Even if you do find your PIP award it will need to be dated within the last year, otherwise it won't be accepted by your local council.

    Thank you for your response. I have a letter with the current mobility award - I receive the highest component - but they want to see the number of points I received. My award is ongoing so I haven't had an assessment in the last year. I'm 71.
