    The information on Turn2Us website says:

    The best way to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration is to write to the DWP at the address on your decision letter. You can use the Mandatory Reconsideration request form or write your request in a letter.

    You can also ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration over the phone. Use the phone number at the top of your decision letter. It is a good idea to keep a record when you contact the DWP. 

    What to say or write

    When you ask for Mandatory Reconsideration, tell the DWP (in your phone call or in your letter):

    • Your national insurance number
    • The date of your decision letter
    • Why you disagree with their decision
    • If you are late, tell them why

    When you explain why you disagree with their decision, tell the DWP:

    • How many points you think you should have scored for each activity
    • What you think they did not take into account about your disability
    • Give examples of things they should consider

    Checking the decision yourself can make it easier to know what to tell the DWP. Read our Check PIP decision page for tips on checking and understanding your PIP decision.

    You can ask for more time when requesting a Mandatory Reconsideration they do allow this if you explain your waiting for a report from a consultant or hospital, I would say ask the local CAB but in the area I live its 6-8 weeks just to get an appointment.
