Hey all,

I called up during the week to get a copy of my report and it’s just came through the mail. 

I got 11 points for daily activities and 0 points for mobility. I’m a little disheartened by the result, and at 11 points, do you think I should petition it or just suck it up? 

The difference is quite a high in terms of the payment amount and that alone is making me highly consider. 

There’s a few inconsistencies in the report, such as myself being out of breath when coming in, when I know I was definitely out of breath. Things like that. They seem to be putting a lot of the blame for not getting more points on the fact that I’ve only been on medication for a couple months.

    Petition? Do you mean Mandatory Reconsideration? If so then you will need to wait for the decision to be made before you can request that.

    I'm afraid i won't be able to advise you on whether you should request the MR because i don't know anything about your conditions or how they affect you.

    It's worth remembering that the report isn't the decision, it's a recommendation only. Whilst they mostly go with it, they have been known to go against it.
    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.

    My assessor report suggested 7 points daily living and 12 mobility....the DM awarded me 8 points and 12 points....the said that if I had a bath ( which I dont  ) I would likely struggle to get in and out....and awarded the extra point

    Like your case I'm just hoping they decide to award additional and not remove any.

    Morning all,

    I called this morning and they confirmed they’re awarding the standard rate of PIP and a back pay of £1,142 to be paid in on Thursday.

    I’m still not sure what the points breakdown is that they have decided to set out, but at this point I don’t think it’s worth it to have a MR, and I should be happy with what I got.

    I'm glad they've made a decision and payment is already on its way to you @ckgre96. There's no rush to decide whether you want to appeal right now. Once you receive the decision letter and breakdown of points, you can read through and see how you feel.

    Hi Adrian, thank you, I will. As I’ve been backdated to Mar 24th, I assume that will entitle me to the Cost of Living disability payment that was recently distributed. How does that work exactly, do I need to report a Missing Payment?

    Looks like it could be just under 17 weeks of daily living payment but could be wrong. Do you know what date the decision was made? I’m sure they’ll send a breakdown of the payment

    Yeah the amount is correct based off of the estimated 17 weeks. I’m not sure on the date but it seems likely it was at the end of last week.
