TOPIC: PIP MR decision

PIP MR decision 2 years 5 months ago #124170

First want to say thank you to you all.
I could not and indeed would not have done it without your factual, helpful and prompt replies.

I did chase my MP and received a reply from them almost by return with an apology from DWP and saying DWP would urgently look into my MR and sorry for the lack of appropriate level of service, that was 4 days ago. Today I got a large back pay and standard rate care award and enhanced level mobility unchanged. I have accepted this.

Incidentally your support gave me the courage to take DWPJSA on after a spiteful sanction and also won that yesterday, I know you don't deal in JSA but I got the courage from here.

29/11/13 original claim.
17/03/14 assessment by ATOS
22/04/14 partial decision - enhanced mobility only
01/05/14 mandatory reconsideration submitted for the missing care componant
22/08/14 MR upheld with standard care and back pay.

Sincerely,
Sue

Hi S,

That is great news !!!! :cheer:

We do appreciate your kind words !! :)

However, it is you that has successfully challenged the poor PIP MR service and JSA sanction that you have been forced to endure.

Well done !!

I am sure that your post will only serve to encourage other members to challenge such issues.
