    I've only ever heard of a few people having decision changed at MR stage. Most do have to take it to Tribunal. They will also look at the whole award again not just one part so you risk what you may already have. You haven't had the decision yet so there's nothing you can until this is made.

    The decision has been made and was posted today. But apparently it takes 24 hours to show the award on there screen.

    I was given 10 points for mobility and 8 points for care.

    After a MR, this changed to 12 points for mobility and 10 points for care.

    Like you, I wasn't expecting the result to change at MR, but it happened to me. I did have to return my motability car though.
    The new 'extension' period wasn't in place at the time.

    I had to return my car on one Friday then the following Friday recieved my enhanced award!

    I did purchase my own car afterwards though, with the help of the transition bonus. It was all bit of a pain at the time, but I'm happy now.

    That's cheered me up did you send any other evidence I think I can see where I can get the 2 extra points on both.

    Ah I sort of cross posted with your other thread... the value of keeping individual cases in one place might be something MSE should be more aggressive in directing I feel.


    Anyway... report sounds more helpful than I initially got impression. It is possible they'd change decision... and the fact that you are likely to soon receive decision of standard rates but with only 2 points from enhanced rate of each suggests to me you might stand a half decent chance of getting a better award in pursuing the matter further... but probably most chance of changed decision in appeal tribunal. DWP can and do change decisions at reconsideration sometimes. You'd have to weigh up the reality, the risks, the evidence etc.. see best way forward once decision received.

    No I didn't send any evidence because I didn't have any!
    I didn't send any with the original form either.

    All I had was medication that I took with me on the day of the assessment.

    The decision has already been made so you're too late for that now. Wait till you know what the actual decision is, decide what you want to do and take it from there. If you want to risk going down the MR route then send your extra evidence.
