TOPIC: Mandatory reconsideration - good news!

Mandatory reconsideration - good news! 3 months 3 days ago #182112

Just wanted to let you know that we have had a successful outcome with a mandatory reconsideration as I know that this is often not the case.
My husband was awarded 11 points for daily living for 3 years, but felt that it should be higher as he is on high DLA indefinitely.
We asked them to reconsider and wrote down which parts we wanted looked at again and explained why. He has this morning received 14 points and also they have given it for 5 years. The relief is immense as he is really not well enough to have to go to an appeal.
We could never have done it without the invaluable advice on this site and I cannot thank you enough for the information on here.
