Season Tickets for disabled

Postby Nico » Thu May 16, 2019 8:53 pm

I've read the criteria needed for buying a season ticket for disabled supporters, but it seems a bit vague. It says I need to be claiming enhanced rate PIP, but is that enhanced rate for mobility, daily living or both?

You can't get enhanced rate for Mobility... if you don't get enhanced rate for daily care.
DLA is still currently being paid to lots of people with a DLA lifetime award.
They have been left until last to be assessed for the new PIP benefit.
Eventually.. there will only be PIP.

Incorrect Clockworktarzan.

I receive PIP at the enhanced rate for mobility but only the standard rate for daily living.

The ticket office staff accepted my proof of entitlement award.

"Incorrect"...
forsooth sir... please accept my humble apology.
The rule I quote applies to people (under certain criteria) still on DLA... and not PIP as I assumed.
My apologies again... my daughter is still on DLA.
