Mandatory Reconsideration

Hi, when you request a mandatory Reconsideration is it a different decision maker that looks at your application or is it the same person who made the original decision?

    During a Mandatory Reconsideration, a different decision maker than the one who made the original decision reviews your case, providing a fresh perspective for a fair evaluation.
    If you're a college student, you know how hard it can be to get through your assignments. From essays to research papers to presentations, there's never enough time to get everything done.

    I wouldn't call it a "fair evaluation." Only 23% of PIP MR decision's change. The majority of decisions are a copy and paste of the original decision, how can that possibly be fair?

    Hi all, although I have yet to receive a letter confirming, this morning I called the automated payment line to find my monthly pip had increased from £380 pcm (standard for both) to £556.40, which would lead me to believe that following my mandatory Reconsideration they have increased my mobility from standard to enhanced which is what I wanted- will confirm once I have received my letter.

    Hi all I received my award letter confirming after my mandatory Reconsideration the care element was to remain at standard with the mobility increasing to enhanced, I'm very pleased with the result.
