    Hi,

    You can ring DWP and ask for a copy of the assessment report. Although sometimes this isn't always a good idea but some people prefer it. It will let you see what was written during your assessment and give you some idea as to what the decision will be. Mostly the Decision maker will go with the report but sometimes against it. It wil also help if they refuse you because then you'll have it ready for when you ask for the Mandatory Reconsideration (MR).

    Did you send in any evidence to support your claim? Hopefully you did. Unfortunately there isn't anything you can do but wait for the decision. Hopefully it won't be too long, some have a decision in about 2 weeks but it can take anything up to 8 weeks. Were you claiming DLA before or is this a PIP review?

      Call DWP for what? To ask for a copy of the assessment report you mean? if so then some do some don't it's enterely up to you. An MR (Mandatory Reconsideration) would be something you'd ask for if you were refused. Hopefully you sent in plenty of evidence to support your claim and the decision will go in your favour. If you added a mobile number on the claim form you sent it at the begining they'll text you when they have all the info they need to make a decision. If you didn't then they'll send you a letter when they have all the info. Once you have recieved either of these you know it won't be long.

      Hi Morag,

      As i've stated to you before whether you report these changes is entirely up to her BUT you do risk losing what claim she already has because they will look at the whole award again. 4 years is a long time to have an award for. and reporting changes they'll send her another form like she filled out before. May i ask how old your mum is and what award she already has please?

      It's entirely up to you as i said before, some people ask before a decision has been made some don't. It's PIP you need to ring if want a copy of the report. You'll need it for a MR if you need to go down that route anyway.

    Afraid you will have to be like the rest of us, wait and see, if you don't get what you think your entitled too appeal. Also don't know what happened at your assessment but if you have to go for an appeal make sure you have all the paperwork and take someone with you for support, don't get flusttered and make sure you give them all the info. Good Luck
