Won my MR was created by Debbiedryland
I had to reapply for PIP this year, which I wasn't expecting as I thought I only would have to renew. But I won enhanced on mobility and daily living at Tribunal 3 years ago. So I subscribed to B&W, against the advice of some FB groups, and reapplied. I used your resources and tried to keep everything to point (something I find difficult) and I had a telephone assessment and it sounded like the assessor understood completely. However, despite the assessor admitting in numerous places throughout the assessment that my condition had deteriorated, she used my original assessment as a starting point, which was flawed. She didn't take into account of my award from the Tribunal. I was awarded standard daily living and enhanced mobility, which was slightly higher than my original assessment. I had my original award stripped back from the date of the assessment to the date of the new award. I was devastated. However, I used the guidance here and wrote in "their language" and pointed out that they had admitted at various points throughout that my condition had got worse yet they awarded me a lower award. I briefly pointed out mistakes made by the assessor and responded to their "assumptions" with evidence. I was fully prepared to go to Tribunal when I finally got my MR and they awarded me even more points than I had asked for. Award for 3 years, enhanced on both. I will stay with B&W now to prepare for my renewal because I know that they will try and find a way to prove that my condition has improved! Thank you B&W!

Hi Drylander,

Congratulations on your success,

I liked it when you said you wrote the MR 'in their language'. That's something I have done successfully in the past, but could never think of an appropriate phrase to explain it.

It ought to catch on!

Regards,

Phrank.
