TOPIC: Thanks!

Thanks! 4 months 2 weeks ago #177812

A mixed bag, I got my PiP assessment back (in two weeks)! I have been awarded standard rate care. I could appeal for higher rate, but my daughter is ill and when I got the letter on Saturday morning, I was sat next to her hospital bed, so I can't be doing with it at the moment. The good news is, I had a F2F the following week and this morning the results have come and I am in the support group. Such a relief. Thank you to all for the readily available information on the site, and Thanks in particular to Gordon who always answers my posts!

Congratulations on the SG award and a slightly more reserved well done for the PIP.

You can make a Late Request for an MR up to 13 months after the date of the Decision, but be aware, if your reasons are not accepted by the DWP then they can refuse the MR and you will not be able to take the matter further. It would be unusual for them to do this but it does happen.
