Hi Everyone 
ive just found out I scored 8 Daily Living points
and 10 Mobility points in the Telephone Assessment report,  could this translate  in the final decision to18 points or is it one or the other? Any insight would be very welcome, 
Thanks

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    If the decision maker goes with the report that would mean you would get standard rate for both components

    They are recommendations only and the report makes up part of the evidence used to make a decision. They sometimes go with the report but not always.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Commonly the DM will follow the report but they are supposed to look at all the evidence in order to make their decision. As we have no knowledge of your overall submission and evidence there is no way anyone can make an informed comment about your case. 
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
