    Hi and welcome 

    If you have already submitted mr not a lot you can do other than wait for decision 

    It will depend on how good you have tepresented your case in the mr but the success rate isnt fantastic but there are cases where decision is overturned 

    If not you can then go to tribunal so it's not end of it till then and success rate at tribunal is a lot higher 


    Good luck and let us know how you get on

    I have submitted support worker letter, social worker letter, detention letters , hospital and police reports about my mental health. Was told my decision will be made in the next week by case manager. Have a feeling it will go to appeal again but you never know. Thanks for your input I will keep you posted on MR outcome...

    Just spoke to the dwp they have overturned their original decision in my favour to enhanced rate for both components at mandatory reconsideration stage. Over the moon and proves mistakes can be rectified before need to appeal:).

    Hello My husband is suffering from bipolar disorder with mania and he has 13 points. We have to renew PIP only in 2 years but I will start the procedure in 1.5. For all that time I have had medical assessments to prove his situation is getting worse. We haven assesements from Home treatment team after every appointment (every month) which can be used as evidences and also letter for PIP which says they conforming that current situation with my husband qualificated for highest rate of PIP and telling what exactly he can't do
    Shortly more evidences - better for you.Every word must have a proof such as document
    One more thing - first we've got 0 points of PIP, then after mandatory letter 11 points and after i said about court- WE'VE GOT 12 points which is enough to get highest rate
    Sorry for my broken English I am Russian ;)
