Enhanced PIP rates awarded to client following appeal

Our Welfare Benefits department recently assisted a former Personal Injury / current Court of Protection client of ours who lives with a brain injury and hidden disability.

Our client’s award of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) had been fully revoked further to a reassessment, and there were a number of problematic factors regarding the case.

Two Decision Makers had supported this revocation and so our Welfare Benefits team submitted an Appeal. This led to a third Decision Maker accepting our representations, and revising the decision under appeal.

In the end the polar opposite outcome was secured: an award of the enhanced rates of both PIP Components.
