    Hi @tracyj59 sorry to hear you were unsuccessful with the MR, it's usually the case unfortunately. 

    We have lots of info and links regarding tribunals here for you to browse and CAB have plenty here too.
    It's totally ok to fill it all in yourself if you want to, the key is to show which descriptors apply to you and give them real world examples where possible.  To start with though, you just need to say you disagree with the DWPs outcome.

    You should just give brief reasons why you disagree with the decision. You don't need to send anything that you've already sent because DWP will send all of that once they respond. If you do have anything extra to send that you can do that at a later date.

    Hi tracyj59, I think we are in the same boat. We didn’t get that successful text so we are expecting a refusal letter in the post. It is so dis heartening.

    Tracyj59, we was awarded 2 points. It’s crazy how they only awarded us two points. And I feel that the m.r will not have read anything from our part, only what their own people have written. I am pretty confident that if this goes to a tribunal, that we would win. Because my mum is ill. it’s just dragging this all out, and at the same time, we have other family issues (dementia) so our attention is being pulled in all directions. I didn’t know it was a 12 month wait, thanks for letting me know. I might start a new post to see how long wait times are by location. I’m in the London area. I will wait for that letter. I’ll let you & this board know, because I was reading these boards a long time before my first post. Thanks for replying, and I wish you the best of luck.
