    how blind are you on dla/pip?

    Hello. Just curious for those who are registered severely sight impaired. What is your snelling score and do you receive dla/pip at which rate?

    This might be useful as it spells out what different 'levels' for visual impairment would mean in terms of the DLA descriptors.

    Can't find anything similar for PIP so maybe using the guidelines for DLA?

    For my mother the RNIB came out and completed all the forms for her. They have a knack of completing them better than 'us'.

    Just wondering on variations of blindness and awards... Ive researched dla eligibility and hubby is entitled to higher rate. Is your mum black blind? Or has some vision?? If so what was her snellen scale result? X
