Update! MR is going off, poss today. Support worker is sending it off with her report, which is quite good. Won't hold my breath tho as I know they wont take any notice of it. Can I please ask, does it go to address on decision letter? Cant find anything in B&W guides about it, although I probs can't see it for looking right now. When support worker rang for address they gave her this really short address, like a really short version of address on decision letter, but I would like to be 100% sure as I don't trust em one bit! Thanks :)

Yes send it to the same address as the Decision Letter has on it.

Oh deary me! Got copy o support workers letter for MR yesterday. Not much good I'm afraid. Nowhere near as good as I initially thought, and lots missed off. At least it bought me a little time, don't think coulda done it myself anyway. Need to start preparing for appeal. Strength in me very slowly returning, although had two very bad days beginning o week. But at least having one or two better (won't say good) days now and then. Onwards n upwards eh? :)

Sorry that the letter is not as helpful as it could have been :( However, I am glad that you have had a couple of better days.

Another update. Refused pip after MR because they did not receive support workers letter. Now how did I know they were going to say that? Support worker definitely sent it and has proof, she will ring them from here next week, but I think it might be best to just appeal. Happy Christmas! :)
