Pip MR help!?

I sent my MR off on the 12th of October, i called a week later they said they received it the 13th my question is... On the turn2us page it says if you haven't had a notification after 2 weeks to call to see if its been logged. Would that class when i called that its logged on file/system? Im not very technical i have a hard time understand some stuff so please be kind x or do i get a text like when they received my pip forms etc etc

    They don't always send a text. You said yo9u've already rang them and they told you they've received it, although if you only sent it on the 12th and they told you they received it on the 13th i'll be very surprised if they did because there's huge postal delays going to DWP.

    @poppy123456 yes i sent it the 12th of October, i called on the 19th the 0800 number and the man said, yes we received it the 13th and he said, did you send, supporting evidence i said yes thats correct and he said yes we received it the 13th so i wasn't sure if i would get a notification like its now on file so to speak. Its just something i came across on another post. I didn't say anything about i added supporting info

    You already know they've received it so it won't make any difference whether you receive a text message or not.

    I sent my MR guaranteed next day delivery. I checked royal mail which confirmed it was received the next day. Do I still need to phone after 2 weeks to make sure its been logged?
    Thankyou

    Good that sent delivery but unfortunately it will get slapped on a pile so it's a waiting game. Hopefully it will be seen soon. I had a reply well a text a month after sending mine off then a random letter asking for bank and if I have been in care or prison dated 5th Sep but received two days ago.

    It’s pointless sending anything to DWP this way because it still has to go through the Mail sorting process the same as everything else. All it means is it’s been signed for by someone from Royal Mail and is somewhere in the building.

    Hi @Del1149 ive just called pip helpline just now, i sent mine off 13th October they received it the next day, and the lady said the MR are taking up to 3 months to sort out. So she said i probably wont hear anything now until after Christmas.  ??  maybe it depends on you're area where you live hope this info helps

    I sent my MR  off on receiving the official confirmation notification letter. Having received the assessment report and seeing my award was to remain the same as I put in a change of circumstances daily living. I set about preparing my MR giving examples of what the scoring was for each descriptor and what it should have been in light of my original application. The HP had assumed or presumed that as I used a mobility scooter which my disabled grandson  drives unaided she had deemed I should be able to cope and manage the PIP descriptors safely and repeatedly and in a timely manner. My MR consisted of 10 A4 printed pages, my new award was enhanced daily living and i remained on enhanced mobility. If you have your assessment report and need to do an MR you have extra weeks to get more evidence to support your claim.
