Hi to all'

I have received my Pip but its a different amount as they haven't included the money as I am partially sighted as I didn't get to take my partially sighted paper with me but still think it should be included how can I still get them to include it what do I need to do. 
Please can you send me a link so this can be added to what they have given me. 

Sparklebright.

    Hi,

    Could we have some more information please? Were you previously claiming PIP and was this a review? If so then what award did you previously have and what award do you have now?

    Sparklebright,

    If your PIP is different then it could mean a few things:

    you were previously getting a mobility and daily living component and they've removed one of these
    you were previously getting a component at a particular rate, and now you get a lower rate
    you were previously getting one component and now you get the other one (unlikely but not impossible).

    If you think your PIP is wrong then the first step to take is to ask for a revision (called asking for a mandatory reconsideration). You might want to send in your partially sighted paper (or a copy of this) if that's important to the result. It can also be useful to ask for the assessment report so you can point out anything which isn't right, and if you are able to do so, explain which descriptors should apply to you (that is how you score points in PIP).

    The descriptors are here.

    The letter you've got from the DWP should explain how to ask for a mandatory reconsideration.

    If you can give us more information though, then as Chloe and Poppy says, we can give you more targeted advice.

    Hi @Sparklebright. I believe you recently had a PIP review? Have you received the decision for that yet?
