I have today received my PIP report  which is full off contradictions to what assessor has written to what decision maker has written. I have
throughout the report been he/him and then she . States im not on any medication half way through report but first page of report lists all
my medication . Decision maker states I was observed to walk round living room , assesor states I didnt get up off the settee at all during interview , the list goes on .

    Hi @christinedavies
    It may be worth giving them a call to enquire why the two reports differ so much.
    in any case it’s worth putting in for a Mandatory Reconsideration. @poppy123456 is good with advice on here.
       Good luck Debsidoo.x

    @christinedavies - I didn't get a report from the decision maker; just a letter that said where I'd been scored points and what my award was. Your's must be different to mine.

    I realise that the report is contradictory, and it shouldn't be, but does this affect what you've been awarded do you think?

    If you think that your award is wrong then,as @debsidoo has said, you have a month to ask for them to carry out a Mandatory Reconsideration.

    HI,

    Have you received the decision letter as well as the report? If so then it's possible for them to go against the report but it's rare.

    If you have had the decision then you need to put the MR request in writing stating what you disagree with and where you think you should have scored those points and your reasons why. Adding 2-3 examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    I would advise you to contact an advice centre near you for face to face advice.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    yes poppy had award notice and report came this morning. I have printed out form for MR and will get it sent off a.s.a.p. The award notice and report have many contra-indications and the two are completely different in different descriptors
