Had a conversation today with PIP an advisor I guess

I asked for an outcome regarding my mandatory reconsideration which she replied to me a decision was made on the 17th of October

She told me my award seems to be the same as my current award that I have in place now

somebody will be confused does that mean no changes happened i.e. I’ve gained more points and also have not lost any points

I’m just really confused I’m not sure what to think of that conversation it wasn’t really much Help With I’m honest @poppy123456 Any help or advice would be great if you can give me so much great advice of the past

    It appears to mean the award is the same (it’s possible the point score has changed but not sufficiently to change the award).

    Once you have the MR Notice you can appeal to the tribunal service if you wish.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    It may be the case the points awarded at the original decision stayed the same which happens the majority of the time. Next step is an appeal if you wish.

    Do you know who can give you some confirmation @chrisssy? As I can hear that is what you feel you need. 

    It sounds difficult that you didn't get much confirmation from the conversation on the phone. Hopefully, things will get better for you soon.
