Many Thanks,

When a reconsideration is requested, can more info be sent to new DM??

This was not made clear, as the person i spoke to kept leaving me on ho;d to speak to someone else, who now comming to think about it may have been the original decision maker.

As i would like to send in more info.


Yes, you can, however, there is a limited time period for you do this. The time is not specific, but typically is around four weeks.

This limitation does not apply to an appeal hearing, where you can continue to submit evidence up and until about two weeks before the actual hearing.

So am i right in saying that tomorrow i will ask for reconsideration in writting and will also be informing them that i will be submitting further info, so i will be well within the four week deadline,as i have till 12th november thereafter,I can send GPs additional info and my reasons as to why husband should be in support group.

Hi Gordon,

How right you were in ensuring that all said on the phone should be put into writting!!!!

I spoke to DM department 20/10 2011,(all converations are listed on this thread)as till yesterday had not recieved paperwork relating to WRAG decision, i called DM department, only to be told they have nothing on screen regarding my request for reconsideration and paperwork.

Luckily, i have till 12/11/2011 to appeal and have now done so in writting, special recorded delivery!!!

Members, take note, do not rely on DWP in good faith, as this could cost you valuable lost time to appeal.
