TOPIC: Have I left it too late to request a MR on PIP?

Have I left it too late to request a MR on PIP? 4 months 3 days ago #174461

I was successful earlier this year in transferring fron DLA to PIP the decision letter was dated May 2016. I was too ill and stressed going through the claim and f2f to request a MR within the 28 days. I scored 11 points for care. One of my main problems, not wanting to go into personal details is due to one of my permanent embarrassing disabilities, which causes me exceptional personal embarrassment and anxiety in the company of anyone which renders me a practical recluse. Also the HR in his report made reference to me having my daughter and being upset, crying and having to look to her for answers.

My question is can I still request a MR in writing or have I left it too late? I am due to be reassessed for ESA and in my original forms advised of the above. I truly would have no other option than to commit suicide if I was not put in the support group again

Hi mememe,

DWP might accept your MR request if you can show 'good reason' for the delay. This is entirely down to their discretion and you would not be able to take this further without their agreement.
Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
