Have you been affected by the PIP 20 metre rule?

The Disability Benefits Consortium is looking for either new claimants of personal independence payment (PIP), or DLA claimants who have been reassessed for PIP and who have been affected by the new 20 metre qualifying distance for the enhanced rate mobility component of PIP.

The PIP 20 metre rule judicial review case is due to be heard on Wednesday 9 July in the High Court in Birmingham and the consortium is looking for people who would be happy to talk about their experiences and possibly be a media case study.

They would like to speak to those who have been awarded the standard rate mobility component but who believe they would have received the enhanced rate mobility component before the 20 metre rule was introduced. This includes people who can reliably walk between 20 and 50 metres.

If you would be happy to talk about your experiences, please email by Monday 30 June 2014.
