Hi,  I'm new here, and hoping that this is the right place to post this.

 

I applied for pip and was awarded standard mobility (10 points).  

I did an M.R. but got the same result.

 

They acknowledge that I can't leave my house without having someone with me.

They accept that I'm not completely housebound as I go out to appointments, which are not a regular occurrence,

 

they also said that they can't award me enhanced because I'm not out most days.

 Is this correct?

 

 Surely it shouldn't matter how often I go out?

There is loads of information online about how DWP make decisions.  DWP publish all of the documents used by assessment providers, as well as how DWP Decision Makers arrive at decisions and there are many disability advice  organisations that can help with appeals, if you wanted to take this to the Courts Tribunal.

You are best advised to study all of the information available and if you are struggling with how to appeal the decision further, then you need to contact Benefit advisory services that can help you with this,   Many local Council Authorities have staff that can direct people to  local advice services and it not unknown for their to be local Benefit advisors who will help you put together appeals, as well as attending Courts Tribunal with you.
