    It simply means they've given you a timescale of when the decision is likely to be made. However, as a guide it can take anything up to 12 weeks. You'll be contacted once a decision is made.
    The most likely outcome of any MR will be the decision remains the same, if this happens you can proceed to Tribunal. What benefit is this for?
    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.

    Hello @jog_123

    I can see Poppy has already answered. I too was unsure which benefit this was for, but I moved your post to Benefits and Financial Support in case you had anymore questions and this post be seen more :)

    I also have Inflammatory Bowel Disease and we have a great section on the forum called Rare, Invisible and Undiagnosed Conditions where you'll find a few fellow IBDers :)
