Got my MR decision today 
No change to initial score
Did not view my evidence from support worker
Claimed they had no reason to disbelieve capital asses even though its complete lies
Will now go to tribunal as nothing to lose
Does anyone know how long you wait in central Scotland for an appeal

    Hello, no idea if time scale in your area but generally it looks to be about upto 12 months. Sorry for the bad news hope yours is earlier and the truth comes out, with a positive outcome.

    Hi @l14l21, sorry to hear you're having to go to tribunal. Do you have all the information you need and understand the process or can we help in any way?

    Hi thought I would post my result
    Got a call at work last week and answered alot of questions to a lady from DWP
    Remembering I am awaiting a date for tribunal. 
    Well she asked to call me back in 10 mins and when she did I was informed that my boy was being awarded enhanced rate for both living and mobility and I did not need to go to tribunal. 
    This has been a long journey since June 2018 but so glad I stuck with it going from 0 points on both to maximum points on both.
    I want to thank everyone for their support  and dont give up.

    Hi it was the same for me. The MR agreed with the original assessors report and said something like "there is no reason for the assessor to lie or make up fabrications". I have had my appeal and went from zero points to 18 points.

    I waited around 7 weeks for appeal in central Scotland. The wait times are faster here than in England I think
