2 points (rejected) to 26 points (enhanced both)! 5 months 14 hours ago #259554

I was on standard daily living and no mobility.

Reassessment came, and I got a very lovely assessor who couldn't have been nicer and more understanding of my health situation.

But when I got the report back it was like it was a completely different assessment. Extremely horrible, dismissive, and used out of context information from reports against me, which made no sense. I got 2 points and all my financial support taken away.

Mandatory recon came to the same decision. 2 points, no benefit.

I applied to go to tribunal and used Benefits and Work guide to point out all the issues, which took a lot of emotional energy but got there in the end.

DWP called me to say that they are going to give me enhanced rate of both - 26 points overall.

I don't know how it can go from 2 points to 26 points but I know I couldn't have done it without the guides.

Thank you for all that you do. Benefits and Work shouldn't have to exist, but I'm so glad that it does.

Hi smonkey

Many, many congratulations on your award. It is stunning when they manage to go from 2 points to 26! But I am so happy for you. And well done for persevering and using the guides. Glad you found them so useful.

Congratulations smonkey. A similar scenario happened to me. 2 points, mandatory recon no change, applied for tribunal and received a call. Enhanced for both.
Very well done, I know the feeling :)
