    Hello there @bruno05 and welcome, thanks for reaching out, you're not alone in feeling dissatisfied, and I'm sorry this is the outcome of your reconsideration. 

    Just so that I understand fully, was this for a PIP application, or something else?

    It's not unusual for the MR decision not to change. You don't mention which benefit this is for, is it PIP or DLA. Either way, you can now request the Tribunal. https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal

    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.
