    Hi @Lassyloo

    I'm really sorry to hear about this. The first step is to request an MR as Mike says. That's a mandatory reconsideration - you are asking the DWP to look at the decision again.

    It's useful to have an idea of what points you should have scored, and why, before you do this. You can use the PIP self-test to think about what points you should have got. 

    Try to get your mandatory reconsideration request to the DWP within a month of your decision, if you can.
