Pip descriptor points. Should I let DWP they've overlooked relevant descriptors, or just leave it?

Should points for pip be correctly awarded relating to relevant difficulties or should I just ' leave it at that' as suggested by another member, or should I let DWP know they have overlooked relevant descriptors?

    The only way dwp will look at it is if you put in a MR then the whole award will be looked at again 

    So you could explain in the mr what you think is wrong but risk the award being changed tho in most cases there is no change 

    I would get expert advice before doing anything

    Answered on your other thread. Or at least it will be in a moment! 

    Sadly, @janer1967 you've not been given the full picture here. It's not a straightforward ask. See the other thread.

    Sadly @janer1967 there is no need for this person @mikehughescq to be rude and call me daft. I was only asking for advice. I thought that's what forum were for to ask questions about things that aren't easily understood which pip isn't

    Hi @jl11972

    I hope you are well this evening. 

    I'm sorry that you don't like the response given from Mike, however I don't think he was calling you daft, not at all, but I see why you might feel that way. Mike was just pointing out that there is a more detailed description of your issue in your other thread, detail which is often valuable in enabling users to answer your question. 

    I think it also helps you too that you don't need to repeat the same information twice, once in the other thread and then again in this one if people ask questions to ascertain additional information about your situation.

    I hope you have found some of the responses from users on the community helpful, but you can always feel free to ask further questions if there's anything else you need to know. Alternatively, as suggested above, you might wish to seek further support from places like Advice Local, or Welfare Rights.
