    Yes payment often arrives before the decision letter. Looks like your claim has been successful. Backdated to the day you rang to start your claim.

    This is why you should add up those points in the report because there maybe contradictions in the report itself but that doesn't mean no points have been recommended.

    Yeah I did, it said I was 2 off standard DL but I was 10 points mobility. I’m very happy at the moment least I’ve got something, will have to see if I still need to MR
