I get the highest disbaility benefits (high rate for both PIP awards) (UK benefit) This disability benefit is over £600 4/weekly month.
One of the conditions for getting high rate mobility is that the majority of the time I’m unable to leave the house without support as it causes undue stress and anxiety, ie not able catch a bus alone at all. This is the case when I’m unwell because I have paranoia and anxiety so always have my support staff with me. I can get Confrontational with people when paranoid. This is way I was awarded high rate benefits.
Sometimes I’m in remission. I’m in remission now so if I were to go on holiday on my own without support would this be a contradiction in me needing benefits? If sometimes I can’t catch a bus alone but then travel to a strange country alone, navigating airports, budgeting my money. Could they see me as more able then is written down in my benefit forms and I may be liable for fraud as clearly I’m more able than I say as I’m able to go on holiday alone?
High rate PIP for both you have to be seriously disabled to get these in the U.K. I am when unwell.
