I should hear in about 2/4 weeks if I'm going to retain my PIP. Who do I appeal to if not allowed it. ???

    Is that to be done in writing or over the phone?

    I would do both and note the day time etc and ask for the person who you left the messae with and also back it up with a letter,tell the operator a letter will follow and could they put that information onto your file,thats what i do

    You can do both. I rang DWP just to tell them I was going to send a letter requesting a Mandatory Reconsideration and they gave me an extension on the time scale of 4 weeks from the date of the phone call but I don't know if that's a ruling or not. Otherwise as Johnnie said you have 4 weeks from the date on your decision letter. I think you do have to write in to request they look at it again and it's better as you can send any more evidence and you know by then what you're not in agreement about. Have you got your assessor's report? If not you can ring DWP PIP number and ask for it to be sent to you. Good Luck...

    You can ask for a mandatory reconsideration over the phone or by letter. Most people recommend sending a letter as you can then keep a copy as a record of this request.
