TOPIC: PIP basic rate to Enhanced rate.

PIP basic rate to Enhanced rate. 3 months 3 weeks ago #207580

I have appealed to DWP asking them to re-consider their decision of awarding me basic rate PIP in favour of enhanced rate. They now (at long last), have received further medical evidence from my health professionals. What normally happens from here ?

Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explain where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

You say you have appealed, do you mean you have requested a Mandatory Reconsideration?

Was the medical evidence requested by the DWP or have you sourced it? if the latter, did you inform the DWP that you would be sending it?

The next step if a Decision on your MR to be made, probably in the next couple of weeks.

I will warn you that revision rates at MR are very low so you may need to consider making an appeal.

Hi Gordon,
Thanks for your reply. I didn't make a mandatory appeal for reconsideration, I just wrote in to them. Today i phoned them and they said the info. had arrived from my doctor and had been scanned into their system.
Should I wait for the outcome before making a mandatory appeal ?

If you have written to them then I would expect this to be taken as a request for an MR. There is no reason for the DWP to look at your award again unless it is via an MR.
