TOPIC: PIP PA4 report vastly different to decision?

PIP PA4 report vastly different to decision? 1 week 3 days ago #223851

I was given a lifetime award of DLA in 2008, and at the end of last year had my face-to-face assessment to bring me over to PIP. When I received their decision - zero points anywhere - I was extremely upset and asked for my medical report.

Weirdly, the assessor had giving me 11 points for care? A lot is wrong with the report, and I'm working on my documents for mandatory reconsideration currently. Just confused and curious what reason there would be for the face-to-face assessor to give me points, and the decision maker to throw them all out. The assessor clearly wrote down that I cannot do certain things - if not to the degree I agree with - and the decision maker's verbatim little screed simply says "You said you have difficulty with (task), I decided you can do (task)." Strange.
