TOPIC: won man recon but reduced rate

won man recon but reduced rate 9 months 2 weeks ago #196638

I went for assessment last month got turned down. I appealed for a mandatory reconsideration and sent in additional evidence and won it it. But have been awarded standard rate off £55 a week . I scored 11 points. What I want to know should I ring up and request another consideration or tribuneral to get 12 points enhanced rate ? What I was getting originally before they sent me for another medical ? I'm aware by going tribuneral I could lose or gain points . Just seems unfair I need 1 more point !

AS the MR has now been decided, you are entitled to go to appeal if you wish. It would help if you are clear on how/why you should have scored that extra point.

I think it is unlikely that DWP would do another MR without giving them additional supporting information.

The PIP guide has links to the SSCS1 form that is needed to appeal. If you think you want to go down this route, please reply to this message and we will do our best to help.

Thanks for reply. After having had a think, decided best just to leave it and accept the decision.
Really can't be bothered with further hassle and stress for sake of winning extra 20 pound more a week.

Clearly this is your decision. You might have the opportunity to increase your award at future reassessment. As things stand, this will be started a full year before the end date of your award.
