    That’s a tough one,think I’d be the same so close to the high award but I’d be personally scared incase I lost that totally,hope someone can give you some good advice

    I also fell 1 point short of enhanced care, but as I got enhanced mobility an ended up £40 a week better off on PIP than DLA, i let sleeping dogs lie.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    That's the thing that worries me, can they take off what they awarded me?

    That's what am wanting to know to? It's stressful do or don't I like you I don't want to loose what am given

    I think I read it on here somewhere that you can lose what you’ve been awarded doing an MR,I just had my assessment today but if it comes back with 0 points I have nothing too lose by doing one but if I get an award I will be leaving mines as it is

    Yes think I will don't have it in me it's all to stressful good luck I hope it's the out come you want

    Yes, the whole claim is reconsidered so they can take away points you already have.  

    This is the sort of the case where it's best to get external advice before making your decision.  People that score 0 have nothing to lose by trying it but as you already have an award it's different.

    Personally, I wouldn't risk it if you have no 'need' of the extra money from enhanced rate.  However if you'll be struggling on standard alone then it might be worth the risk.
