    PIP..change of circumstances request 14th Feb 18 at 6:55 PM
    As itís been approx 10 months since ,owing to part time hours salary etc.
    Iíve been attending fortnightly hospital appts for blood test until beginning March 2018 -then mri then 8 weekly appts.
    Anyway Iíve also at last started M.S. medicines since Sept 2017-possibly for life depending on blood tests.mrisí
    Iíve requested a change of circumstances pip form-which I have received.
    I want to inform dmp of points I made above and hopefully increase from 8 points lower rate mobility points to higher rate mobility -and consider possibility of stopping to work-permanently.

    Is there any help on how I could answer the PIP form-itís not a shortened version -questions very similar to original pi form (since 2012-I have m.s. since 2010)

    Thanks in advance mserís

    Unfortunately no one here can tell you how to fill that form in because we don't know how your conditions affect you daily. What you need to do is write as much info as possible. You'll also need to send in evidence to support your claim because they very rarely contact anyone for evidence.

    They will look at the whole award again and not just the mobility part and you could lose everything you already have. The criteria for mobility moving around part is 20 metres or less regularly reliably, without pain and discomfort. Good luck and expect another assessment because most people have these.

    Thanks mser!!!8217;s too late tonight for personal mentions.
    Excellent information-I!!!8217;ll certainly use a lot of the advice mentioned.
    I have until 5th march to complete and return form.
    Very surprised what counts as an aid-stool etc interesting!
    In addition I can use my medicine (which is amending immune system to zap lesions/m.s.)
    I have years of health contracts-I!!!8217;ll prop update this info to incude nurse support-though haven!!!8217;t managed to request a home visit yet as i!!!8217;m Independent when possible.
