Does anyone know?  because I had a review and scored 0 points sent in MR if I win and they award me care and mobility which I only had care before will the mobility part be backdated to 2016 when the government changed the rules on mobility side for mental health? because it was just a review not a new claim

    AFAIK it will only supersede your existing award, but don't jump ahead you have to get a successful MR first. Good luck

    Hi @anubis68 - as above, please wait & see your MR decision. If you're thinking about some recent changes to the case law as regards the 'Engaging with others face to face' descriptor, which I think it might be with you mentioning 2016, then the DWP are only looking at a decision made between 6th April 2016 & 17th September 2020, & then only when they consider getting an additional 2 points would mean a person might be awarded the standard rate of PIP, or a standard award might change to an enhanced rate. The DWP say that they will contact anyone who had a claim during that period if it might change their award. So, you don't need do anything even if that applies.

    Hi it wasn't the face to face part it was the mobility part
    I was told by DWP that it was going to be looked at again that was in 2019 but they have a lot to look through
