PIP mandatory reconsideration time

shibisabershibisaber Member Posts: 4 Listener
Hello,
In early November time, I asked the DWP for a mandatory reconsideration, a week or so later I got a phone call from the assessor asking if they had all the new documents and that they were going to make a new decision that afternoon. It's now been over 6 weeks and I haven't heard or gotten anything back from them.

Is this normal or should I phone them up?

    HI,

    For an MR it's approximately 2-10 weeks, sometimes longer. Although there's not really any timescales for any decision. Do remember though that there were also closing days for Christams and New year.

    Hopefully not too much longer.

    Hi there 

    Hope your not waiting too much longer 

    It will be a DWP decision maker not the assessor that makes the decision . The assessors only do the assessment and complete the report 

    Why not give them a call after the holidays and see what's happening

    Yeah, I believe it was a decision-maker my mistake!

    @hollymurray40 unfortunately no. I haven't got around to ringing them either, it's absolutely ridiculous! All I really want now is the letter back so I can go to tribunal (which I'm unfortunately expecting)
