    Hi,

    Even if you had scored points for washing and bathing and dressing and undressing, what you described above won't be enough to get you an award for daily living.

    For mobility, telling them you can't walk very far won't score you any points either.

    You have 28 days to request the MR but you need further advise as what you stated above won't be enough for an award. Speak to your local CAB or other disability advise centre.

    Given what the poster has said and the fact that the CAB filled out the claim form, going back I would think is a non starter.
