Hi
has anyone got their assessment report and added up the points in the boxes ? If so when you received your decision did it match up to what you thought you’d get ?

    @poppy60 I can assure you if you feel you've got more than adequate points more than 12 on each section recommend by the report you've recieved, the DWP desicion maker will in 99.9% of the time goe with the assessment providers report.

    Only in vary rare occasions the DWP go against them. I got 38 points spread between the two daily living and mobility on mine and all agreed by the DWP.

    Your welcome @poppy60 looks like you should be okay with that amount of points, I woulden't worry to much she bent the truth, I would be suprised if you don't get Enhanced on both. Please let us know how you got on when you get your decision from the DWP. Good luck.

    I have secondary progressive MS but the accessor said she recommended a review in 2 years . Do you think DWP will change that ?

    Hi,

    It's very rare they go against the report, even for the length of time given before a review, so i would be very surprised if the DM goes against the report for both of these.

    Well @poppy60 as @poppy123456 has stated they do usually go with the recommenced review time, in your case 2 years which really is disgusting as they full well know you will only deteriorate.

    If and I will say they will also go by the 2 years you've stated. When it comes to review I would imagine you will get pretty much the full 2 years as it's a short award.

    My guessing if it's is 2 years you will need to refill a full PIP2 form in again around 14 weeks before the award ends if they do to decide the DWP to give you a longer award then it will be an AR1 form a year before.

    The government is talking about light touch assessment every 10 years for people with progressive illness so I’ve read . Perhaps they think I will be cured in 2 years

    I agree but if you don't ask for an ongoing award the chances are you won't get it, at least this is what i've been told on here.

    If the recommendation is review in 2 years then your award will be for 3 years with review in 2 years, which will mean more forms 1 year before the award is due to end (AR1 forms)

    There's nothing more you can at this stage until a decision is made. Once it's made if the award is short you can challenge this decision but you'll need expert advice before doing this and no one can give you that here. Good luck.

    @poppy60 I've got progressive and many other issues and I got and I feel very lucky too. On-going No FTF, and No further reviews needed 

    I can't advise what poppy123456 has said by asking for a higher award I have heard people mentioning it? Also 2 year awards can just be 2 years.

    I claim Standard daily living and Enhanced mobility. My daughter claims Enhanced for both. Her award is for 2 years with review in 1 year and she has a learning disability and Autism.... there must be a cure that's unknown to me for both of these LOL. I'll be asking for the ongoing award for her when it's her review time. Good luck with yours.

    Poppy123456 good luck in asking for on-going that will be interesting...And Your right how ridiculous as we know there's no cure for autism or learning disabilities.☹️

    Yes but isn't that only for those who receive the enhanced rates for mobility and care?

    I think we would all like to hear how you go on with that application.
    And let us know what evidence you have used to secure an ongoing award.

    From memory the DWP are currently only giving 3 year awards for those who have terminal cancer.
