    Hi @WilliamsG33, and welcome to the community!

    Sorry to hear about your PIP experience, and especially that you had to fill out the MR in a hurry- did the DWP give a reason for needing it by a certain date? Usually, you have one month to get it back to them. It's difficult to predict your chances of success, but please do keep us updated. You might like to check out our guidance on DWP appeals in the meantime.

    Thanks Pippa Scope one reason for the lateness submitting, was  that our friend L whose Dad was hospitalised and missed the deadline,and she had to look after her elderly mother thus missing it,also does anyone know if there is an appointed person in Medical practices tsolely to support and help people with learning difficulties with form filling and advice

    She could put all this information into the MR to explain why it wasnt fully filled it and then ensure that the MR contains as much information and evidence as possible,

    We have some videos on appeal here
