PIP success, backdated payments 4 months 1 day ago #251159

I had to apply for PIP at end of 2016 when my DLA came to an end. I had an ATOS appointment in January 2017 and a month later was refused, having amassed just two points. I used this site's guidance on mandatory reconsideration and was still refused. I couldn't face appealing. But in February this year the DWP wrote to say I was one of the 1.6 million cases to be reviewed. I was in two minds but decided to ask for mandatory reconsideration again. Once more I used your guidelines and only slightly rejigged my MR letter. Last week, I got back payments totalling almost £11,000 for nearly four years and have been awarded enhanced mobility until early 2027. I fell one point short of stabdard daily care and am considering asking for a further review. But thank you! This is life-changing for me.

Hi LouiseBee

Many congratulations on your backdated PIP award. That is so good to hear and so glad that you put in for the MR again.

Hi Erica

Louise's post was over a month ago so she may not be around to answer your question.
