    Thank you sharing this with us. Did they mention how long the letter will take?

    Hello and welcome, when you where claiming DLA the claim was based on your illnesses,and disability. Whereas now you have migrated to claiming PIP the criteria for this benefit is different and acessed on your abilities to preform the PIP descriptiors safely, reliably and in a timely manner. So when you receive the award notification letter also phone DWP and request a copy of your acessment report so when you requested your MR you can refer to the report giving several examples of why you disagree with the report for each of the  descriptiors you are contesting.
