    Hi Berry, I was just thinking about you; did you receive a copy of your report at all?

    @anxiousbird hi have you had a decision yet bout your pip ? 
  • cupcake88cupcake88 Member Posts: 951 Pioneering
    @berry123 good luck with it berry please let us know how it goes xx

    @cupcake88 hi, I’ve literally just received it in the post. Denied, ofcourse. The decision maker went with the report. My report was received my DWP late on 27th February and the decision letter is dated 2nd March, so made within 3 days (assuming that the letter was printed the same day as when the decision was made!)

    Hi can anyone give me advise and tips for MR I will fight this till the end
  • anxiousbirdanxiousbird Member Posts: 144 Courageous
    @berry123 I’ve just started my own discussion regarding MR. 
    I’ve heard here that GP letters are not all that useful in describing your day to day difficulties. Have you ever had therapy or on the waiting list? Did you give examples of how you face difficulties with various tasks? Apparently that’s useful but I did give all that information and still didn’t score any points so don’t know anymore 🙄

    @berry123 and @anxiousbird I’m sorry to hear you have not been awarded pip . Im
    not sure what your disability is Berry is it mental illness ? I think yours  is all mental illness @anxiousbird or some physical too ?

    my Disabilities are all mental illnesses I have no physical disabilities, I was awarded pip so I haven’t had to do a MR so I wouldn’t want supply you false information but I will say that the evidence I sent off was care plans from the crisis team so if your under a community mental health team or any sort of specialist they might have care plans all about your illnesses and how they affect you . The care plans I sent off were given to me by the crisis team that have different notes from professionals With in the mental health team that not only talked bout my illnesses but how they affected my day to day , I also sent off a prescription list , and my partner wrote a letter about how my illness has affected me daily referring to the pip descriptions so if you have some one who lives with you or sees you regularly who can write how they see how your disability affects you that makes really good evidence . 

    @anxiousbird If your therapist can supply you with some information on how your illness affects you for you to send off that be great also . 

    A pip assessment is one of the most stressful things . It made me so anxious before and after the assessment I made no sense I was so anxious I’m so glad my partner was there to support me on the phone call . 

    I’m under a community mental health team some times they have people who can help you with filling out benefits the crisis team do .  

    Do not give up keep going I know it’s hard but we are all hear to support you .

    Thanks cupcake88! I did send off most of that evidence along with a letter from my therapist but it feels like it’s all been overlooked.

    @anxiousbird I gave everything sent evidence off with my pip claim but the answers undid give inshoukd have scored at 2 point in each descriptors minus few things I can do like communicating and reading my point I should have got was 13 to 15 I have started my pip MR so let's see
  • anxiousbirdanxiousbird Member Posts: 144 Courageous
    It’s a flawed system unfortunately. Keep me updated with how you progress with your MR, I’ll do the same :) 
  • berry123berry123 Member Posts: 256 Courageous
    @anxiousbird the assessor lied my daughter noted everything  I said I'm gna write all the descriptors s how was it said. Fingers cross

  • berry123berry123 Member Posts: 256 Courageous
    @Sandy_123 I just started my MR letter rang pip.got a tx from them was going to ring my gp for evidence what was written on assessment report was nothing what I said.  Let's see fingers crossed 
  • Sandy_123Sandy_123 Member Posts: 1,538 Pioneering
    @berry123 good luck it's disappointing 
  • berry123berry123 Member Posts: 256 Courageous
    @Sandy_123 true you move on not end of the world but not giving up
  • cupcake88cupcake88 Member Posts: 951 Pioneering
    @berry123 and @anxiousbird I wish you both best of luck with it all if the mr doesn’t work then appeal there have been so many people on the forum who have had decisions over turned on a mr and a appeal . Just think of all that back pay x 
  • berry123berry123 Member Posts: 256 Courageous
    @cupcake88 canninask you something whenndoing MR can I put the point that I think I should got on MR letter
  • cupcake88cupcake88 Member Posts: 951 Pioneering
    You have to first get the descriptors in front of you you can find these online and then you then you select which one applies to you and then explain why it applies to you 

    you should tell them 

    why you disagree with there decision 

    How many points you think you should of scored for each activity 

    Give examples of how your daily life is affected. 

    Send what supportive evidence you have .

    it  will be a complete different assessor looking at it . 

    If you could request a copy of your report that can be handy for when filling out the form . I just want to clarify I’m no expert I haven’t done a mr my self this is information I have looked up for you and from what I have learnt from being on this forum I hope this helps.

    if you could get your asthma nurse to write some thing for you that be great . 

    Also a friend or family member could write some thing it really counts as evidence . I think the dwp took into consideration a lot to what my partner had to say bout my illness as he’s really seen how my illness affects so it’s really worth asking some one who knows you well to write some thing about your day to day life living with your disability. 

    I think I was really lucky as I had the crisis team and my partner help me fill out the forms also they helped me with my evidence .
