Old PIP claim help

Hey guys,

Had my claim open now since 2016 and only today have I seen my points scored during my assessment. 

I was marked 0 points for managing medication despite listing on my forms "I use a dossette box to store my medication and my mother visits morning and evening to make sure I have taken these as given side effects from meds and my mental health state, I tend not to remember" 

And 0 points for budgeting. I noted "Due to side effects of meds, I have loss of concentration and desire to manage finances. This has left me in debt. My mother now oversees my income to ensure bills are paid" 

Now, I am aware it's well over the date for manager to look at it, but those points would have put me in higher group instead of standard.

Any advice?
