Hi John,

I'm sorry you did not get enough points to be awarded PIP :(

I'm glad that you have requested a copy of the assessor's report, it should help you understand why you did not score the points you expected to.

Do you think you are going to ask for an MR? Or you could reapply immediately if you prefer. The MR process is explained in the PIP guide.

I'm afraid there is no way forward with this unless you request an appeal, you can ask for what is called a Paper appeal which you do not need to attend, but you should be aware that statistically they are less successful than an Oral hearing that you do go to.

The PIP Appeal guide has links to the SSCS1 form that you will need to complete and the Submissions guide has a complete example that you can use to help you fill it in, you do not need to provide detailed reasons at this stage for your request.

Once your appeal is accepted the DWP will prepare their submission to the hearing and send you a copy, whilst you should wait until you receive this to finish and submit your own, you should start to prepare your own case, an increased award will only be made by your showing that you score the extra points for one, so I would start by going back through your PIP2, the assessment report and the PIP Claim guide to see how you might show this is the case.
