    HI and welcome,

    There will be no points awarded in the report and they won't be added. This is because the report is a recommendation only, although they usually go with it.

    Somewhere in the report there will be dots next to the activities/descriptors. Use the PIP self text here http://www.mybenefitsandwork.co.uk/pip/indexxx.php and put the dots from the report into that test and it will add up any points that may have been recommended.

    You'll still have to wait for the decision but you'll have some idea once that is done.

    @Ldavies. Now you have a month to request the MR. Ring up the DWP to request it and then send in your reasons,backed up with examples of why you don't agree with their decision. Have you thought of going to the CAB for assistance?

    Do you have a CPN or support worker,or a relative or friend that can help you put it together as well?

    No decision's been made yet. I think what Ldavies meant was that the points weren't added in the report, they didn't actually mean they didn't score any points, at least that's how i read it. The MR can't be requested until a decision's been made.

    @ poppy123456, I read the post the same as yourself, must wait for the official award confirmation letter. But there is nothing stopping you getting evidence ready for an MR if required as the Award letter is not going to arrive for a few weeks.
