So I have about 7 months left on my PIP claim but I’m only on enhanced rate care and nothing for mobility. but I believe I should have scored lower rate for mobility and my needs have changed. is it possible to get a MR or change in points ? Now.

    If the decision on your current award was more than 13 months ago then you are out of time now to request the MR.

    You can report a change of circumstances for a worsening of condition but a worsening of condition doesn't mean you'll automatically score more points for a higher award. When you ring they will send you more PIP2 forms to fill in and return with all your supporting evidence.

    As you only have 7 months remaining on your award they should be contacting you very soon by sending more forms to fill in, this will be your review.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    You just report a change of health condition and they will then send the PIP2 form.
