Is it worth appealing if you got the same amount and length of PIP after review?

Can anyone help. So someone I no got there PIP AWARD REVIEW decision back and has got the same amount and same length as well despite hoping to get slightly more. Is it worth them appealing? Me personally I don't think I would just incase you loose it all but that's my opinion again.

    Hi 

    Nobody can really advise not knowing the persons circumstances 

    They should get advice from a professional like welfare rights

    The risk of losing an existing award is small. Between 2 and 4%. The idea this is a common outcome is a myth put around on the internet which is easy to disprove on multiple levels. 

    The specific risk in any given case is impossible to assess on a forum. It requires professional advice. The most common outcome of an MR is an unchanged award and it should not automatically act as a discouragement.

    @Carlbenn_88 what did they get? and what were they hoping to get? Why did they expect to get something better?
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.
