    29/9 requested copy of assessment.   Shows 8 points care 12 mobility.  
    3/10 received copy assessment.  

    Currently awaiting decision.  

    I would like to ask one thing please.  Did you assessment match your award.  So did you get the exact points your assessment recommended or advised?

    The assessment recommended standard daily and mobility for 18 months.
    My actual award was for standard daily and enhanced mobility for 2.5 years.

    It was a very nice surprise!

    Thank you Stacy.   That’s good to know.   At least a chance of being increased etc.
