TOPIC: Paper review

Paper review 3 weeks 4 days ago #221343

Hi all
So I have been on here for about 3 yrs now I wrote last year about getting the benefit you are on not just accepting it because you were scared they will take your award away
Last year I was reporting change of circumstance and was awarded high rat for care and low rate for mobility. Now there was mixed feelings on this as I believed I should have high rate for both so I decided (against everyone's advice) to challenge the decision so I asked for mandatory reconsideration. Which fortunately I won so now a year later they sent me paper review so have read members only guides but still was somewhat confused .... do I just say all my illnesses are same ....or do I say illnesses are same and give them reason and why it's not going to be better so the later I did gave them reasons and my award was till November 2019
So they have sent paper review a year earlier than its due. This is what they can do they hold all the cards and I think it's done deliberately to wear you down but my suggestion if you believe you qualify and have the evidence to back it up then challenge them I have had to have an assessment every year even though my illnesses are not going to improve any it's just a game they play but do your research on here if you have evidence fight it because that is what they want is ... for you to give up yes it's hard but with the help from benefit and work guides it gives you option and advice so let them know we are not going to be scared away from standing up for ourselves good luck all I will post again when my decision letter comes through

There is a section in the PIP Clam guide that covers completing the AR1 Review form and some of the issues that it presents.
