I am looking for some advice if possible please?
I suffer from PD and eighteen months ago I went through a very stressful PIP assessment and was awarded high care and the low rate of mobility. At that time i was awarded 10 points on mobility but no points for my cognitive issues, since that time though my cognitive problems have deteriorated and I feel that this could be classed as a change of condition.
I have a asked for a covering letter from my consultant neurologist which I now have and I would like to submit this as new evidence as I believe I may now qualify for the higher rate of mobility. The problem is I'm somewhat afraid to contact the DWP because after having read lots of horror stories I am scared I may lose what I already have and end up worse off!
Is it still the case that if I were to submit new evidence the whole assessment process starts all over again?? As I don't think I could cope with that,
Thank you and best regards.
