    Hi,

    You need to look at the boxes with dots next to them. As you said in part of the report it says "A" can dress self then there must be boxes with those dots. The A box doesn't score any points for any descriptor. Points aren't added in the report because they're just recommendations. If any points are scored you'll know when you receive the decision letter. No one can tell you if you'll be successful or not.

    Mostly the decision maker goes with the report but you still need to wait for the decision. Hopefully it won't be too long and if you're not happy then it's the Mandatory Reconsideration first then Tribunal, if that fails. Good luck.

    Box A doesn't score any points. There's 9 other descriptors for daily living and 2 for mobility. If it says A for all the descriptors then there's no award recommended because you haven't been recommended any points be scored. Mostly they go with the report, it's rare to go against it.

    Hi,

    The review in one year that you see there doesn't mean anything. As i previously advised in another thread of yours, they do this even when no award is recommended.

    If the recommendations have stated A for all the descriptors then this means no award is recommended. Even though you still have to wait for a decision you can start to write the MR request letter if you're going to start the appeal process. Once you have the decision post back here and someone will advise you with the next step.

    In that last letter the assessor is saying that whilst you do have some limitations but not enough for you to qualify for an award now. However they do accept that things may change over the next 12 months so a new claim then (in 12 months time) could well be awarded PIP.
