Good news - I think!
After having a re-assessment for PIP, my benefit was recently reduced to the standard rate for daily living and zero for mobility. I submitted a request for a mandatory reconsideration outlining what I disagree with and giving examples, as suggested on here.
Only a month after sending in my request, one of the people who care for me received a phone call from someone from the DWP. They said they had done the mandatory reconsideration and decided to award me the enhanced rate for daily living and the enhanced rate for mobility.
They are also going to backdate this to when I had my re-assessment.
Is it normal to receive a phone call after only a month - I thought it was to take 8 to 10 weeks? I was a little worried that something could be wrong!
Also, how long, roughly, does it take to receive the backdated money?
