Pip assessment this avo

So I’ve got my assessment this afternoon and I’m not that bothered about it because I’m fully expecting not to qualify however: I have woken up with particularly jelly-like legs and slept like sh*t so maybe that will go in my favour! Lol

My advice is be honest and take someone with you to help you if you need it. I’ve heard some scare stories about the assessments and the honesty of the assessor but when I went through it I found the lady pleasant and accurate in the report she submitted. I succeeded in getting the lower level benefit on both categories. I therefore don’t have a motability car but use the benefit to pay towards leasing a car/scooter myself. It seems that to qualify for the higher award you need to be so bad you can’t really drive and end up with a brand new car parked outside your house every 3 years!

Haha thanks @mrratcatcher I’m
Not looking for a new car I can assure you! I’m still paying mine off! Yes I’ll go in and be honest obviously. I’m not a fraud I do struggle on a daily basis and on bad days (like today) I can’t stand up long enough to make a cuppa! But on the other hand, on good days I’m able to go to work so, I’ll go in and see what they say! X

@gates1989 , well had the assessment and I think it went well, it was a young nurse who knew about ms and what it does, she prompted me on everything thing, did a sight test and strength test, went through each question and asked me to say as much as possible, she even knew my specialists than asked me to stand on one foot, asked to squeeze her fingers, asked me to do a small squat as if I was going to sit down as if I decided to get back up, so say you need as much help as possible, she also told me they are specifically looking at ms sufferers as they don’t believe that some one with little symptoms and need little to no help should in any way be getting the same as an ms’er that needs constant help and she said there will be no home visit – hope this helps
