Hi have to say have had no problems at all so far only applied for my son in August and got his award today. I'm pretty happy with it except he scored no points for communication as he told the dog to get down as he jumped up. He has serve problems communicating with people. Apart from that most was of the report was accurate. Is it worth me arguing over this or should I just be happy he has an award until 2021 
Thanks you all for your help and I wish you all a merry Christmas 🤶

    What award did he have, as you haven't mentioned that? To answer your question then it will depend on the award received and whether or not scoring those extra points will make a difference to his current claim.

    As no one on an internet forum knows how his conditions affect him then it's impossible to give a definite answer. It's also impossible to advise whether or not there's any risk to his current award if you requested the MR, as they do look at the whole award again.
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.

    Thanks merry Christmas @Gwendoline1

    Hi @poppy123456 he got standard on both 2 points for preparing food. Managing treatment 1 washing 2 dressing 2 mixing with people 2 managing budget 2 so 11 but I'm his appointee partly due to his problems speaking with people he doesn't even own a phone as finds it to stressful. He got 10 for mobility can't undertake any journey because it would cause significant mental distress. Will see after Christmas I hope you and yours has a lovely day.
