Successful PIP..Mandatory Reconsideration

Thank you! Thank you!! Thank You Everyone for your support your encouragements. After waiting almost 14 weeks for the decision for my Mandatory Reconsideration, the brown envelope arrived today with A Both Standard Rate. It wasn't what I was expecting but I am happy to get something at least. My mum (my carer) wants me to appeal but I really cant bear the stress and the emotional strain anymore. I am happy to be helped financially. I can manage with my kids on the award and other benefits.

I am very grateful for you all. Especially Janet for All her support.

I can sleep a bit better tonight without worrying about PIP.

I am sorry but I have never heard of this before. It sounds like shutting the door after the horse as gone. How can they ask for medicals after they are happy enough to give your hubby the award Iin the first place. It just don't make any sense at all to me.

Hi Lizabeth1368 I have never personally heard of this before either. I would ring them and ask them what it is about my friend? Good luck.

Hi Liz,

Wonderful news so pleased for you. It might be a wise move not to appeal if you can manage on the money awarded as several on the forum have actually had their award downgraded when they appealed.x
