    PIP MR & Appeal decision

    PIP MR & Appeal decision 18th May 19 at 8:50 AM
    Hi everybody

    I recently was moved from an indefinite award on DLA (HRC/LRM) to Standard PIP on both. I went through the MR process, and the decision came back the same. I put in for an appeal online, as recommended by someone here (thank you) . . . it was logged with the courts, they said the DWP had until 13th June to respond.

    Just had a letter stating that they have looked again at everything, including my appeal reasons etc and have awarded me 17 points, up from 11, and I am now on Enhanced, and the appeal will not continue.

    Just wanted to let you all know, as I was worried about the Tribunal, and affording to fund private treatment, but they have straight away, within days, awarded the correct rate, for the same length of time (I agreed with the length of the award)
    Thanks for all the advice & help

    I have heard of a number of cases recently where DWP do appear to have reviewed an award once an appeal has been lodged. Would help if they made the right decision to start with (or at least took the MR seriously) however it's a step in the right direction, particularly given the very long waits that now exist to get to a tribunal.

    The DWP, I guess they wrote to us both. Your appeal will not continue in bold, i'm guessing that is their response due by 13th

    As soon as the decision being appealed is revised by the DWP the appeal lapses. You do however have the same appeal rights in respect of the new decision so if you disagreed with it you could request an MR and then take it to a fresh appeal if still not satisfied. This won't apply in your case because it sounds as if you now have what you wanted.
