Hi ive been waiting for 6 months on a review id asked for .assessment points were good .however on a review in 2016 they put my points down lower .I dident appeal as evidence was poor and tbhx dident have the fight in me .Had call from descision maker who kept quizzing me why dident I appeal last time .and am I worse now than in 2016 .I started panicking and said I was bad then too .I feel like she was trying too catch me out and is going too take my points down again now .said she doing it tomorrow but dident say the result. Feeling ive shot myself in the foot .will the timescale go against me .Feel so confused

    For the life of me I do not understand what you did or didn't do in 2016 has any relevance to your current situation. Appealing or even asking for a MR is a personal choice and should play no part in deciding what points you should be awarded now.

    Oooo havent thought about that. Do u mean as I should of been awarded more last time?.She kept going on about the timescale from last review .Surely whatever happened then shouldn't effect the claim now I hope .I would of been revised in few months anyway  .don't see why it matters if I asked for the review

    Rang them back as told it's normal for them too ask how long you've been feeling worse for?.Strange. Surely if you've asked for a review it shoukd be obvious why .confused.com

    I was asked that exact question during my PIP review by a decision maker that rang me. I claim for physical disabilities and the question was related to the moving around part. Good luck with yours!

    it is the mental health bit they now have to look at they ignored it on acessments now have to put it right so if you gave evidence and they ignored it it now is being looked at i presume

    I agree with you @sweet that's most likely what they're looking at.
