MR successful - how long now until a decision is made?

MR was successful as the decision makers agreed with me that they had not asked me at the time of the original PIP form being sent to them by me for additional evidence in support of my claim - they'd rejected it outright because I didn't allegedly acknowledge the request,no such request arrived with me,by the way! 



Letter arrived dated 24th July (arrived on Tuesday this week) saying the claim would now continue as they had made the error of the request not getting to me and my additional evidence was received along with my MR form. It said the claim would now continue,and either a medical assessment or award would be the likely next steps. Anyone found themselves at my stage and how long should I expect to wait,roughly? Thanks :-)

    Hi,

    Sorry i'm a little confused by your question. If you requested the MR because you were refused PIP and the MR was successful and you've been awarded then why do you think you'll need an assessment? Did you previously have an assessment before requesting the MR?

    I'll try and make a bit more sense :) 


    They refused it because they'd apparently asked for additional evidence to support the claim at the end of May. I didn't get the request - either via letter or phone call.  So I requested the MR on that basis.  The letter I got on Tuesday said they agreed that the request didn't get to me,so the claim would now go on,now that they have the additional evidence I sent with the MR (GP and psychiatry assessments) to be looked at properly. I didn't say it was awarded,what I meant was that they said that could be an outcome,but so could a medical assessment. Not awarded at this stage,the claim can now be considered with the additional evidence,if that makes sense? (sorry,I can sound overcomplicated sometimes)

    Thanks, i think i understand now. If a face to face assessment didn't happen then i'd expect one of those this time. If it did then they'll most likely go ahead and make a decision now they have the extra evidence.
