    If they already have a DLA award then yes of course they'll continue to get payments until a decision has been made.

      Enhanced to Standard? there's no such award for that with DLA. Is it DLA or PIP? DLA is only for children under 16 now and has awards of low, mid, high for both. Either way they'll need to ring and tell them they want the MR then put it in writing sending more evidence to support them. They only have 1 month from the date on the decision letter to get this in.

      Hi Denise I meant for an adult on pip who has gone from enhanced to standard on both who wants to ask for mandatory reconsideration.

      Ah ok then yes info still as above. A copy of the assessment report will help for the MR too, so get them to ring to ask for a copy of this if they haven't already. If they have a motobility car this will have to be returned and motobility will contact them regarding this. 65% of MR decisions remain the same so they may have to take it to Tribunal. If they do eventually get Enhanced mobility then they'd be able to have a car again of course. Hope this helps.
