TOPIC: MANDITORY RECONSIDERATION HELPFUL CASE MANAGER

MANDITORY RECONSIDERATION HELPFUL CASE MANAGER 2 years 1 week ago #136160

A great big thank you for your helpful guides, money well spent. I asked for review as my care needs were worse so applied for PIP was awarded the same as my DLA middle rate care and high mobility. I decided to ask for reconsideration and was contacted by really helpful case manager who said he agreed with nurse who done my face to face medical. I pointed out there were things not on form that she had been told. He told me what I needed from GP to have this overturned. Got the letter from GP and had phone call few days later saying I have been awarded enhanced for both care and mobility for 5 years. Just waiting on the brown envelope. I applied end of February had medical middle of April and final reconsideration this week. On reading a lot on this forum I seem to have been very lucky how quickly this has all been done. I must admit the case manager from DWP was brilliant and very understanding. So a great big thanks for all your help and info on forum and in guides.

Really glad to hear that you were able to sort this out during the MR stage, unfortunately, we don't hear of this as much as we probably should so it is good to see that the system can work the way it is intended to on occasion.
