    Hi,

    PIP has 2 parts, Daily Living and mobility. How many points does your report say you've scored for each of these? You say above that you've scored 2 points which of course won't be enough for an award because you need at least 8 points. This isn't the decision but mostly they go with the report. If it says review in 1yr 8 months what this means is that even though you have scored enough points for an award, they don't expect your condition to change within this time. They very often word it this way, even though there isn't an award.

    PIP isn't about a diagnosis, so a change in meds won't affect your points scoring i'm afraid. It's all about how your conditions affect you daily. Obviously you can't do anything until a decision's been made but it looks like you'll need to go down the Mandatory Reconsideration route, then Tribunal if that fails (which 80% of them do)

    Did you send in evidence to support your claim? If you didn't then this wouldn't have helped you. They very often don't ask any medical professional for any evidence, the onus is on the claimant to gather this and send it in with the form. Hope this helps.

      This should have read "haven't scored enough points for an award" and not have scored enough. sorry can't edit posts.

      No problem. You'll need to ask for the MR first before you can appeal to the tribunal. The Tribunal will not accept an appeal if you don't have a copy of the MR decision letter.

      Did you send in evidence?

      Good luck.
