    Hello @23Lonsdale

    Welcome to the community, I hope you are well and enjoy taking part here :) 

    Sorry to hear that the process has taken so long for you so far, it would be hard for us to say what your chances of being successful are but hopefully you get a positive outcome.

    Due to backlogs, things are taking quite a bit longer than usual, but you never know, you could end up with a quicker response. Fingers crossed.

    I have moved your discussion over to our PIP category, which you might like to browse for related discussions.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    There are no fixed timescales for mr some take few weeks others months it's just a waiting game I'm afraid 

    As for your chances nobody can really say without knowing how you ate affected 

    The success rate for mandatory reconsideration is quite low but there are some that are success 

    Good luck let us know how you get on
