Hello, I am a first time applicant. I sent off forms (online) in Feb 22. I recieved my assessors report today (paper based). She has suggested 27 points for DL and 12 for mobility. It also states that it would not be appropriate to review. 

How likely is it that the DWP agree with the report?

    Hello @Em123 and welcome to the community, thanks for reaching out today. I hope you are feeling alright about how your application is going, as I know how stressful it can be.

    I'm afraid I can't answer your question for certain, but I do know that the report is only a recommendation for the decision maker, so sometimes the award you get might be different to the report. As you say, your assessor has 'suggested' points, so nothing is set in stone. 

    Our members can help clarify, but I believe more often than not decision makers do agree with reports, but they have been known to make different awards to applicants. 

    Do keep us updated with how things go, and please feel free to explore the forum if you need to take your mind off things, and to get to know our members too :) If you have any other questions please ask.
