I have had two people approach me over the past couple of weeks and both did not make sure that their MR (one for PIP and the other for ESA) reached the DWP within the timeframe allowed.
Both have been refused the right to have their late MR accepted.
There are no appeal rights for being refused by the DWP for them to accept a late MR - consequently you also then lose the right to go to a Tribunal.
For ESA this can be a major problem as you will not be able to make a new claim within 6 months unless your pre existing condition has deteriorated or a new condition arises. You can claim JSA, but the Jobcentre can refuse the claim if they believe that you are too unfit for work,
