TOPIC: PIP Mandatory Reconsideration

PIP Mandatory Reconsideration 2 weeks 2 days ago #220590

I sent a letter asking for a reconsideration on 26 August 2018 which was delivered on 31 August 2018.

Not having heard anything back, I just called them. While I was holding to speak to someone a recorded message said it takes around 6 weeks for a mandatory reconsideration. When I spoke to someone she said they had received my request buy that it hadn't yet been read, that she would "register it" and that it would be around 6 weeks more. I said that recorded message seemed to suggest it was around 6 weeks total. I was told it is 6 weeks from being registered. And in my case, that registration came 9 weeks after they received my request.

It's a long wait!

I'm afraid there are considerable delays in the PIP Decision process.

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Hi Larry,

My MR kicked in just after yours on the 5th of September - and still have heard nothing.

I get a different story every time I ring the helpline so am not at all sure what is happening, if anything at all.

Last time I phoned, earlier this week, was that it was still with a Decision Maker and advised to ring weekly for any updates.

So no idea how much longer you might be waiting. Sorry.
