Hi, what are the success rates of the mandatory reconsideration process. Is it worth the stress?

    I understand that it's around 16%.  However, you have to ask for an MR first before you can appeal to a tribunal where the success rate is around 65%.  So, yes, an MR is a necessary process you have to go through in order to appeal.

    As at Dec 2016 Disability Rights state that over 80% of MRs remain unchanged.

    Hi Sarahlou73

    A relatively low proportion are changed on mandatory reconsideration. But about 60% are changed by appeal tribunals where you have an oral hearing and attend.

    There's no cost and in our opinion it is well worth a go!

    Good luck
