    Hi,

    That's not called a Mandatory Reconsideration assessment. This will be another assessment because you reported a change of circumstances. A MR means you didn't agree with a decision and this would be the first step to an appeal.

    The PIP renewal is called the AR1 form, you're most likely confusing this with the MR. DWP don't send out MR forms.

    Hi poppy, 
    I bow to your superior knowledge, you were right it was M.I, l got so confused as all this hassle has been going on since January phone calls to chase them up, l did get a letter yesterday saying they had all info now, so fingers crossed

    It can be confusing yes. You can ring and ask for a copy of the assessment report, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. Letters can take a while to arrive from DWP and was most likely sent some days ago, a decision may have been made by now. Ask when you ring, if it has then they'll tell you. Good luck.
