    Sorry to hear this, @debweb07. If you haven't seen it already, you may find this guidance on appealing DWP decisions useful.

    Good luck. There's only a very slim chance that the decision will change at MR stage as only 20% are successful. Expect to have to take it to Tribunal. 65% of those that appear in person at their hearing have a decision in their favour.

    Did you send in evidence to support your claim? They very rarely contact anyone for evidence.

    Was there any reason why you didn't ask for the MR then Tribunal the first time you applied? It's always worth taking it to Tribunal rather than to keep re-applying because they'll most likely keep refusing you. Good luck.
