Well I’ve received my PIP award and hooray I’ve ‘scored’ more points than on my DLA and yet, despite this I’ve been awarded ‘Standard’ rates for both Daily Living & Mobility Elements, to explain how this makes a real difference to me read on.
To get PIP at all, you must score between 8 – 11 points in both daily living / Mobility and to get the Enhanced rate it’s 12 points; the 2 elements are valued differently with
the Daily Living standard rate being £53.00 and the enhanced rate £79.15 per week,
for Mobility, the standard rate is £21.00 and the enhanced rate is £55.25 per week.
This differs greatly from the old DLA which had three levels of award, the rates which are/were worth for care
lowest rate – £21.55
middle rate – £54.45
highest rate – £81.30
and for the mobility component
lower rate – £21.55
higher rate – £56.75
