Disability Rights UK Announces 31st January 2018:
“Our PIP Guide has been updated to include PIP psychological distress judgement
Our PIP Guide has now been updated to include changes to regulations following the High Court decision RF v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.
From 16 March 2017, new PIP rules (regulations) prevented an award of the enhanced PIP mobility rate, for claimants who suffered psychological distress and needed someone with them when when trvelling on familiar journey.
The High Court decision has removed (quashed) these rule changes because they are considered discriminatory and against your human rights.
This means that the old rules apply and these have been restored to our guide
The changes affect Appendix C, Activity 1: Planning and Following a Journey – c,d and f.”
