    HI and welcome,

    If all the top boxes are ticked then there will be no award recommended. You will need to wait for the decision to be made but they usually go with the report, it's rare to go against it. Once it's made you have 1 month from that date to request the Mandatory Reconsideration.

    Do be aware that PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors.

    Hello and welcome sorry to hear about your PIP assessment, if when you get the letter look through and see if yiu think you should have scored points for the descriptors and if so as suggested put in a MR
