    Hi 
    I have been through this it took 6 weeks for my MR decision which wasn't successful so I went to tribunal which I win however the whole process took 13 months from start to finish and now waiting for back pay. Good luck 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can't help I will

    Hardly anyone wins with M.R. its just a waste of time the money whats spent on them could be spent on disabled people i,m sure the dwp do it to put more stress and pressure on the claiment

    Sorry I am a bit thick today, is your MR for PIP or ESA/UC ?

    Around 18% of MR's are succesful, waiting time varies from area to area depending on the backlog

    The assessor won't be interested in what the OP got for PIP. However DWP Case Managers do take note as my son has just been reassessed for ESA and his PIP review was not long before that. It mentioned in the list of documents taken into consideration his PIP result. It is always worth mentioning what PIP you're on in an MR letter and asking for the evidence used for PIP to be reused for ESA especially with news of a possible merger of the 2 benefits being talked about. Only my opinion.

    PIP and ESA are different benefits however, if you're claiming Enhanced mobility for "moving around part" of PIP then it's possible that this could help an ESA claim BUT the only issue is, is that for mobilising for ESA then they look at your ability to use a self propel wheelchair. For PIP moving around they don't consider this, so it's slightly different.

    I claim Enhanced mobility for PIP for the moving around part and i sent my PIP report and decision letter with my ESA50 form in September last year. I also proved that i couldn't self propel a manual wheelchair. My PIP report was used for my ESA and was mentioned in the assessment report. I had a face to face assessment for ESA this time. Decision was made a few weeks later and was kept in the Support Group (LCWRA UC equivalent)

    Also remember that LCWRA is not about scoring points, it's about satisfying at least one of the LCWRA descriptors the majority of the time. This link will help. Scroll down the link for the LCWRA descriptors. https://www.turn2us.org.uk/Your-Situation/Ill-Injured-or-Disabled/Universal-Credit-Capability-for-work-assessment

    Good luck.

    For the mobilising descriptor, they look at your ability to use a self propel wheelchair, whether you use one or not. It's slightly different descriptor to the moving around part of PIP.

    I sent in my PIP forms on my first claim a few months back and they went of all the information of that. I had to attend a F2F but she sent me home after 10 minutes said she has enough info, when the report come it said ‘ evidence available from PIP entitlement ‘. So yeah do send your PIP forms 👍🏻

    On my PIP forms I had no diagnoses and get enhanced both. But now I only have diagnoses of fybromyalgia, chronic widespread pain and bowel problems. I am currently undergoing assesment for Autism. In August I have the review 👍🏻 But got my ESA Support Group till May 2020. What about you?
