Hi just a question please for a friend if anyone can help ..if an assessors report says review in 2 years does this mean that there is an award or would it still say it if there wasn' an award ?

     I understand this means you have an award that will be reviewed looked at again in two years time, your friend will be reacessed way before the two years is up. Hope this helps why they can't word their letters so it's easy to understand, if your not sure ring DWP for an exsplanation.

    If it is the assessors report then this does not mean that an award has been made.
    You can get an idea from the report of the possible award by adding up the points but the award is only made by the DWP. Your friend should wait for the decision letter  to be certain

    My assessors report says review in two years.
    My award is for three until 2021. 
    When you receive the award it might tell you when your review will be, mine has given me a date already. 
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    Usually the assessor recommends a review date , the DM then adds a year to the recommendation as the end date. Reviews are usually carried out a year before then end date ie the review date given by the HCP

    Hi dee

    yes part of the report calls for a review date even if no award is made, the DM can over rule the report and make an award or not. The assessment report is to do with the medical and functional side to the claim as the DWP have no in house medical knowledge but there maybe other aspects for a DM to consider

    I think I got lucky reading these stories. 
    So far mine has written what was said- in too much detail but I did say it like that type thing.

    If this is the case then it is even more important to read it and be prepared. She will only have 28 days from the date on the decision letter to ask for a mandatory reconsideration if she doesn't get the award she deserves, Usually the decision letter takes around 10 days to arrive, then allowing for the return post and reaching the right department, she will only have around 10-14 days to make her case.
    If you can persuade her to read it or let you do so it would be good to be prepared

    Mine says review in 2 yrs as I’m due to see neurologist, and something that I have had for 42 yrs is suddenly going to get better!
    Amazing what knowledge these nurses have.

    Sounds like he falls into the new chronic illness guidance i.e. lifelong condition and won't be reviewed again. Good news.

    From experience they are not even qualified as they know nothing about medical conditions which is why 99% of the assessors lie and make things up that weren' said or even happened the whole system is a joke and they need to actually hire actual qualified medical professionals

    That’s a misunderstanding of their role and how the benefit works. No medical qualification is needed to assess functional ability. A medical qualification would only be needed for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment and HCPs do not do any of that.

    DLA used only medical professionals for over 20 years and the results were demonstrably no better.
