    Hi @natti77 and welcome

    Have you asked for a copy of the assessment report ?

    The first stage is to request a mandatory reconsideration, You should identify which descriptors you fit the criteria for and give 2-3 examples of what happens when you attempt each.

    If possible you should get trained advice from an agency near you

    Hi CockneyRebel 
    i have got the person who scores you report from the PIP
    can I ask for a report from the person who assessed me?

  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Member Posts: 5,257 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes you can ask for a copy of the actual assessment. I think it is a PA4

    Ok I never knew...I’m actually in the process of asking for the mandatory reconsider the assessment for me 
  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Member Posts: 5,257 Disability Gamechanger
    As you know PIP is about how your conditiom affects certain daily living tasks and mobility. Have you taken the self test to see which descriptors you fit ?

    Yeah I did and I passed everything on it so I don’t understand why I scored 0

    my mandatory reconsideration is it better writing to them or to phone them?
  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Member Posts: 5,257 Disability Gamechanger
    it is always best to put anything in writing to the DWP and keep copies. Make sure that you do not miss the deadline and to be sure ring them a day or two before

    Hello @natti77 Pleased to meet you .  My friend @CockneyRebel has given you a lot of excellent advice.

    Please if I can make a suggestion. Please ask your sister to  make some notes on what you need to do.  Go onto the posts my friend has sent to you.

    I would also make another suggestion get some help with this The MR Mandatory Reconsideration . I would speak to CAB.

    I know myself. Does help.

    Please if we can help with anything. Please ask.

    Pleasure to meet you.

    Take care.

    Hi CockneyRebel 

    The reason I’ve asked is because the things I’ve said and my report just does not some up..
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    When requesting the MR you need to put where you think you should have scored those points and your reasons why. DWP or the Tribunal, if it gets that far won't be interested in any lies told in the report.

    Hi Poppy123456
    Well I’ve made a start with MR
    I’m really not happy after reading my PA4 report I should of been scored on things and I got scored 0 on everything.
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    Also add 2-3 examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies.

    Only 18% of MR decisions change so expect to have to take it to Tribunal because most do. It's a very long process so be aware of that and a lot of people are waiting in excess of 1 year for a hearing date.

    @natti77 "the things I’ve said and my report just does not some up.. " Unfortunately this has happened to many of us on this forum, as has the 0 score. At tribunal, if you attend, 73% of claimants win.

    …..provided you are professionally represented otherwise it falls to about 50% if you go it alone.
