Decision Maker awards LESS than Assessor!

ABloomABloom Member Posts: 6 Listener
After a grim assessment/report 2 years ago was dreading this one - even though a Tribunal gave me enhanced for both!
However the Assessor's report gave me 13 points for Living and 24 for Moblity BUT, when the DM's decision arrived, I was given 11 points for Living - they kept the 24 for Mobility.
Has this happened to anyone else?  If so, how has the Mandatory Reconsideration gone?

    Hi,

    Yes, it's rare but it can happen. In fact there's a thread on here from today where it happened to someone else.

    You now have 1 month from the date of the decision to request the MR. You should put this in writing stating where you think you should have score those points and your reasons why. Adding a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    Good luck.
