    Hi @cotter40, and a warm welcome to the community!

    I'm sorry to hear about your circumstances, and I'm sorry to hear about your PIP outcome too. Are you appealing the decision?

    This information on the Scope page may help you get started, and do feel free to come back to us with any questions.

    Well done Cotter, Go for it. Mandatory, the Tribunal, if required. I got told 'If at first you don't succeed try-try again'. Keep fighting & they'll soon get fed up.

    That maybe too late, as you've already requested the MR over the phone. DWP may just go ahead with the decision without waiting for the evidence, i've heard this happen many times before.

    Letters of evidence from a GP aren't the best because a GP very rarely knows how your conditions affect you against the PIP descriptors.
