Hi so I've recently got my pip assessment report from DWP I looked online and matched the ticks with the benifits to work pip test I scored 6 on daily living and 4 on mobility. But I'm confused the other boxes on my assesment report are ticked. I've got 3 months ticked for mobility saying how long it likely to have been present for and 9 months ticked for at least 9 months for mobility to likely remain for the same all ticked for daily living activities and then it says it is likely the the functional restriction identified in this report will be present at the recommended point of review that's ticked yes. And then it's ticked to say I don't need a review? I'm confused

    If the Decision maker goes with a score of 6 and 4 you will not be entitled to a PIP award. Once you have a decision you can challenge it if you wish to.

    The 3 month and 9 month boxes can be ticked even if there’s not enough of points recommended for an award.
    If there’s no award recommended you wouldn’t need a review.
    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.

    Do you currently have an award or were you refused after that assessment?

    @poppy123456 I was refused after that assessment. I scored zero on everything last time but this time my medical statement looks different I have ticks in places I diddnt have before and like I said above I scored on the pip benifits test 6 for daily and 4 for motability but I called DWP today and asked about the point system they said it's just a marker to help the case manager look at what's most effecting me it's not the point system

    That advice is incorrect. You didn't ring DWP, you rang a call centre, who have very little benefits knowledge.
    The boxes in the report with the dots next to them are the PIP activities and descriptors and this is what the assessor has recommended. Underneath those there's their justification for the reason why they ticked that descriptor.
    The scoring of 6 and 4 points means there's no recommendation of an award. While the decision maker mostly goes with the report they do sometimes go against it but it's rare for them to do this.
    Was there any reason why you didn't challenge the previous decision last year? To constantly reapply using the same evidence you previously used is likely to see constant refusals.
    If this decision is another refusal i'd advise you to get some expert advice from an agency near you to check that it's possible to score enough points needed for an award. If it is then you should challenge that decision by first requesting the Mandatory Reconsideration within 1 month of the date of the decision. If that decision doesn't change then you can proceed with 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.

    @poppy123456 sorry I diddnt really explain properly. I did appeal the decision in 2021 but it's got refused by the judge as it was a paper based tribunal so I decided to go to a company called dial to help me and they told me to request a statement of reasons and I have done so. I'm still waiting of that and dial told me to send the statement of reasons to them when I receive it. The reason why I've started a new claim is because I've got new evidence since the previous claim. I've sent the recent assessment to dial and they told me that I've explained everything in detail I just need to wait for a decision

    Ah ok i see thanks. Yes, a paper based decision at Tribunal stage have a very low success rate of between 5-8%. When taking a decision to Tribunal it's always better to either appear in person or have a telephone hearing and this way the success rate jumps to around 70%.
