TOPIC: PIP claim and evidence

PIP claim and evidence 7 months 4 days ago #182245

Hi, I have just spoken to a DM, who said the GP questionnaire requested by ATOS came back after the award was done and that it is now showing on the DWP computer as a 'task' . This DM said she was sending a message to another DM pointing out a piece of relevant evidence in the GP questionnaire. The DM explained the MR option but also I got the impression that the DWP could change the award without my doing an MR if this evidence was to be significant in their opinion. I am hoping that I may as a result hear that I am given a low mobility award as my GP has provided the evidence on this questionnaire that was needed. Do you think I could receive a letter saying that they have decided to award me the low mobility without me prompting it with an MR?

They may do this, but the one month to request an MR remains linked to the Decision date and you can loose your right of appeal if the MR is late.

So basically if they haven't revised the Decision by the end of the one month you need to decide whether to request an MR or not.

Thank you, I know. I don t think I will do an MR ,what with my daily living being 13 points, too much of a gamble. Its frustrating that they did not wait for the GP questionnaire to come back before doing the award. Plus it was also commented on the ATOS report that there was no evidence of medication for my mobility problem which is again frustrating because that was tried and unsuccessful many years ago. I started to explain this to the DM but she said that was too long ago. But it would be pointless to year in year out keep trying medication that you know has not worked in the past! So this has gone against me, I did write about trying medication in the past on my form but my GP does not mention that in her questionnaire but she refers to pain on walking for any length of time and how I have been fully investigated in the past by the specialists but they cannot hep any more. Do you think that probably too vague for the DWP to act on?

Are you able to tell me when to expect the email regarding subscription renewal, I mean my year must be almost up. Does the email come roughly a week before your year is up, or weeks or days before it expires? I don t want to miss the renewal because I don t want to put my real name as showing by mistake. With the renewal, I know you said I won t have to worry about that problem, but I would have expected to have got the renewal invite email by now really.
