Hi on Monday I had my telephone assessment and when I’ve received a copy of the assessors report I’ve been given enough points for enhanced living and mobility I currently receive only stand living has anyone had this and then received a different decision awarded ? Or has the decision been the same as what has been given on report ?

    Mostly they go with the report but it has been known for them to go against it. 

    Usually for reviews started by DWP they don’t backdate the award to an earlier time.

    However because of the delays with decisions they sometimes backdate it to an earlier date. Not everyone receives the difference between the 2 and there doesn’t seem to be any consistency.

    Decisions can take up to 12 weeks after the report was returned.
    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.

    Thank you for your reply pip have told me previously due to the back log I’ll get anything backdated if I’m entitled to extra but anything could happen I’m not going to get my hopes up. I hate waiting for things like this it sends my anxiety wild.
