TOPIC: successful reassessment

successful reassessment 2 months 3 weeks ago #229656

just to say without this fantastic site and gordon we might not have got through this, thank you
my wife was transfered from dla( hrm and hrl) to pip 11/2016 went to face to face, the lady was not really sympathetic, she was awarded standard rate on both untill 11/2019, i pleaded with her to have a mr and appeal but she was to ill and stressed to do it. 12/2018 got the reassessment form we sent off 15/12/18. she had her ftf 04/04/19 . at last got a sympathetic nurse. got the brown envelope 20/04/19. she was awarded enhanched on both until 04/22 and a reassessment 04/21. the only gripe was was the length. she is 62 and suffers with osteoarthritis in back feet knees, shoulder, fibromyalgia etc. have you any opinion on the length of award gordon ?

Congratulations on the award.

The length of the award is part of the Decision and can be challenged but I can't offer a view as to whether you should or not, although I can say that we have not seen much success at the MR stage so you would need to be prepared to go on to appeal if it is a matter you want to pursue.
