Mandatory reconsideration and 2 under payments

erin2490erin2490 Member Posts: 43 Connected
So I wrote another thing out sending a M r off and today I got a phone call saying I had 2 underpayments due... But she didn't want to tell me for how much as they send it off to debt management Incase they need to deduct any money off. 
I only challenged the care component due to the report said i said I'd never been percrubed hearing aids which was untrue and I felt I should have had 2 extra points the whole claim. She did say I was going to get enhanced rate for care now but my question is....cause I know they look at the whole claim again when doing a mr. Rather than just the bit I wrote about is it likely they may have changed the mobility aspect of the claim ( I didn't ask on the phone as I didn't even consider it till I got off the phone)  and thought why are there 2 underpayments ? 
I know I will find out in the next week anyway I just wondered if anyone on here had any ideas. Thanks in advance

    If you do an MR then they look at the whole award unless you restrict them to award length. As to the likelihood of a changed mobility award, no-one here knows the facts of your case so they’re not in a position to comment as to the risk. All we can say is that most awards remain the same after an MR.

    My question really was if they had a successful Mr did the care underpayment and the mobility underpayment get payed into their bank accounts separate.

    She told me I had gone up to enhanced on the care but I didn't even ask about mobility as I didn't consider it until I got off the phone and though why am I getting 2 underpayments 
    Thanks for the reply

    To answer your question, both elements were increased via my MR.  I received only one backpayment covering both elements.

    Thanks for replying and I'll just have to wait and see I guess. I'm an overthinker so brain never shuts off ha. X
