It’s Great To Share Good News
It’s great to share good news.
My girlfriend with bipolar 1 was awarded standard rate care and nil mobility. We entered a MR, and addressed every comment the DM made point by point. We drew attention to what we felt were inaccuracies and faults in the report. I don’t think we could have done this without the information we received here and also the information we found in in the SAR and other benefit sites
The DfC have now awarded her high rate care and standard mobility on the MR.
The only bit I find hard to understand is that the award has been reduced from 2 maybe 3 years to six months which looks strange! That said the message was given over the telephone to my GF so I’ll wait to see the written detail just to make sure. We are minded to accept
I know most readers are British based and MR success rates are low, we’re Northern Ireland based so maybe they are operating differently here. I should als say the initial assessment was paper based
