    You'll need to put the request in writing stating where and why you think you should have scored those points. Then add a couple of real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies to you.

    Avoid mentioning any lies/contradictions that may have been told in the report because they won't be interested in any of those.

    You have 1 month from the date of the decision to request it. Good luck.

    Everything you need. Keep it simple. Focus on the strength of your evidence not the weakness of the HCPs.

    Mk200 So sorry to hear that.. Is this your first time applying for pip? I am currently going through the stage of applying first time at the miniute. I had my assessment on Thursday last week and a txt of dwp on the Friday to say they've received my report and I've rang up today to request a copy. I'm not looking forward to the outcome as the assessor was asking me some very odd questions! Don't give up what ever you do! Am I right in thinking you've had an assessment and got your report and decision all in a weeks time?

    @poppy123456 @mikehughescq hi what should i do i have rang dwp and they have told me they will send mandatory reconsideration letter out but have text me saying this You've asked us to look at our recent PIP decision again. We will write to you once we've done this. As a guide you should hear from us within 10 weeks. You don't need to contact us unless any of the details you gave us have changed. Thank you.

    Which I'm confused if you only get 30 days and they told me to send the evidence into them the dwp but I've heard you don't send it to them as it will take longer the evidence that I should send it to court im so confused I don't no what to do i really struggle with stuff like this can anyone please help its stressing me out bad

    They don't send any decision through a text message.

    You should put your request in writing as previously advised in another comment of mine. Although you have requested it over the phone, which i really wouldn't advise anyone to do.

    Before Covid19 the chances of MR's succeeding was less than 20%, now that has increased to more than 50% (which i do find extraodinary. You need to give yourself every chance of being in that high percentage and requesting it over the phone isn't going to give you that chance.

    @mk2000 i see you posted on my wall, i don't reply to messages sent on there, sorry.

    Send the MR request to the address on the decision letter. Or you can use the MR request form in the link that Mike posted for you above, it will need to be downloaded and printed.

    @river123 ye its first time but now I'm just confused about the appeal It really doesn't make sense ive requested for the appeal form but I don't no what to do then cause I've read dont send my evidence to the dwp to send it to court instead

    I'm not sure what you've read but the Mandatory Reconsideration (MR) is your first step and this is nothing to do with HMCTS (Tribunal) you need to send everything to DWP at this stage.

    If the MR decision doesn't change then it's the Tribunal request.
