TOPIC: New awards

New awards 10 months 13 hours ago #195921

If a new award for PIP or ESA is lower that a previous one made, does the DM have to acknowledge this and give reasons for it being less ?

I don't think that there is a good answer to this as it depends on context.

Should they, yes! Do they, no!

Is there a reason for your question?

The only grounds you need for an MR is that you believe you should have received a higher award.

Referencing a previous award may show that the DWP have not considered all of the evidence that they could, but the bottom line is that an award will only be made by the claimant showing that on the day of the Decision they met the criteria for a particular award.
