    Hi and welcome 

    Do you mean you have put in a MR for your decision to be looked at again ? Or are you waiting for the decision to be made from your assessment 

    Either way there are no fixed timescales it depends on the backlog they estimate 2-8 weeks but this is just a guide

    Hi @kate4abbey123 - Welcome to the community. I hope Poppy has answered your query if it's to do with a Mandatory Reconsideration. Hope you have a good day, & please do say if you have any other queries. :)

    HI and welcome,

    Have you received the decision or just the assessment report? If it's just the assessment report then this is just a receommendation and not the final decision, although they do usually go with the report. You'll still need to wait for the decision. Once it's made if you're not happy and think you should have scored more points for a higher award then you'll have 1 month from that date to request the MR.

    The report is not intended to simply repeat or agree with what you told the HCP. It’s an assessment. You give them your view of your functional impairments and they form their own view. It’s important to understand that it’s not wrong simply because it’s different to what you expected.
