Got a copy of my review- looks like I won't get PIP again

Hi folks, well had copy of my review today, looks that I have not  scored enough points for even the minimum daily living ( only 8 points ) Don’t agree with a few so may appeal ( obviously can’t do that until I actually get decision ) but looks cut and dry with only 8 points ! 

I presume now my P.I.P. award will stop ? Or will other details be taken in to consideration i.e. medication etc . 

Also will my P.I.P. award run until it the award was granted  till next year ?

    Hi @slondon22, it's great that you requested your report ahead of the decision but I'm sorry you feel you have not gained the points you need!

    What are you meaning regarding medication? Is this support to pay for this or because you take medication?

    Please do let us know if you require any information regarding the appeal process if the time comes :)

    Hi,

    If the decision doesn't go in your favour then i'm afraid your PIP will stop approximately 4 weeks after the decision is made. You then have 1 month from that decision to request the MR followed by Tribunal if that fails.

    They mostly go with the report, it's rare to go against it.

    If you do decide to request the MR you should put this in writing stating what you disagree with and where you think you should have scored those points and your reasons why. Adding 2-3 real life examples of what happened the last time you attempted that activity for each descriptor that applies.

    DWP won't be interested in any lies told in the report. Any complaints should be made to the health assessment providers.

    Hi , thanks for comments , all noted ! Although I do think I have made a mistake as in daily living activities scored 9 , 

    Have had a good read up now and my score should entitle  me to basic award in daily living activity as ( if I have read correctly ? )  the scoring is between 8 and 11 basic award 11 and over higher rate , so maybe I jumped the gun a little to soon ? 

    I just wondered if anything else was taken into consideration regarding award besides the points system ,

    The best way to add up those recommended points is to use the PIP self test here http://www.mybenefitsandwork.co.uk/pip/indexxx.php

    This way you won't get flustered and confused. Just copy the dots/ticks from the report into the test and then it adds it up at the end and tells you what you scored.

    They mostly go with the recommendations in the report, it's rare to go against it. You will still have to wait for the decision though.

    You are confused somewhere. 8 points will give you a standard award.
