    Once a decision's been made it takes 24 hours to see it on the computer. The decision may not have been made. You are only "pretty sure" that's what you were told and nothing is final until that decision's made. Once it has you will be sent the decision letter and if you're not happy it's Tribunal stage next.

    If they can't see the MR decision then they don't know what it is and assuming it has not changed is complete nonsense. Even if it stayed the same there would still be an MR decision to see. In other words the person you spoke to today doesn't know the outcome and you should pay no attention to what they said - you need to wait for the letter.

    Neither - just means the letter hasn't arrived.

    If you think you can score more points for Enhanced daily living then it's Tribunal. Before doing this i'd advise you to get some expert advice to make 100% sure you can score the points required for Enhanced daily living. Start here https://advicelocal.uk/

    I wont do tribunal also says ongoing period but will be reviewd december 2022 can anyone advise what tbis means thanks

    Ongoing usually means 10 years but review in December 2022 isn't ongoing as such. Are you sure review is December 2022? because that's only 14 months time. Although you can be reviewed at anytime, it still makes no sense.

    Yes as i was origanally awarded from feb 2021 and review dec 2022 but ongoing award after m/r my origonal date was dec 2023 eend date

    This means that your award length was shorter before the MR. They've now increased that length of award to ongoing, whch is the maximum length of 10 years but as advised, they can still review your award at anytime.

    A review should always be treated as a new claim and yes, people mostly have assessments for those.

    It seems like you're confused by the original decision letter telling you your award end date of Decemeber 2023. (review from Dec 2022) You then said it was changed to "ongoing" so please check the MR decision letter to see exactly what it says because an ongoing award is usually 10 years.

    It says on both elements you can get this from feb 2021 for an ongoing period then a few paragraphs down it says we will conta t you while you are getting pip to see if your needs have changed and to look at the amount you get this will be after dec 2022 thats word for word in  the letter thanks

    That is a bit bizarre and it may be worth contacting DWP to query it.

    Yes, my thoughts exactly.
