    Hi there,
    Yes this does happen, I have certainly had the experience of ringing the DWP for them to say 'oh I didn't realise the claimant wanted an MR' even though the request was sent in weeks before - sometimes you need to push & push (this is where the MR request was very clear, as well). Things tend to go to the bottom of the pile so we need to be persistent.

    Anyway I'm glad you have now got it.
