    What things do I need to do for an MR ? I’ve already got CAB to do the descriptors & they’ve sent it off . I only got 4 points from my initial claim - which was ridiculous.

    Hi,
    If the MR request letter has been returned there's nothing more you can do but wait for the decision, which can take anything between 2-12 weeks. Once a decision's been made if you're not happy then it's Tribunal.
    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.

    As already advised by poppy there’s nothing more to do but wait - which can be several months.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
