Mandatory Reconsideration

TheEmotionEngine Community member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi All
Im just looking for some advice. A friend of mine has just been awarded PIP and whilst they are extremely grateful, they have been awarded the standard rate.
They scored 11 points however there is something in the report which we feel is incorrect as it states that they do not suffer from anxiety although they are on the highest dose of an antidepressant because of their anxiety and depression.

Will sending in a MR mean a stop to their benefits whilst the decision is being made? 
I’m aware that a decision could stop the benefit or will remain the same but im
just checking that by doing an MR it won’t affect the benefit they are receiving currently.

Thanks for any advice received.
