    I'm just a casual observer taking a short break from filling in my daughter's PIP2 form - having stopped for a much deserved cup of tea. Do you you what I'm not in a position to offer any advice except for - you should check out the Benefits and Work Website - it might be worth you having a look at their guides - you'll pay a small fee but it's worth it.

    It does make you wonder when these assessors are sat there typing all the information in during assessment after assessment - are they in a world of their own? Do they listen to claimants? Do they make typing mistakes - but just carry on anyway due to being in that much of a rush? Or are they just downright nasty with a warped sense of justice? Or are they just bloody incompetent?

    If we're asked to go to one of these assessments - I think I'll insist beforehand that a duel recording be made - via a double tape deck bought from say Ebay. Hope you get sorted.

    Hi
    An all too familiar story. Firstly, if you requested a MR by phone then follow that up with a letter and send it by registered post to the office dealing with your claim (the address is on the top of your decision notice) and in it also mention you have already made an initial phone call. This creates a paper trail just in case the DWP's selective memory syndrome kicks in and they have no recollection of your phone call. Secondly, make sure you do this in the one month time-frame you have from the date on your decision notice. Third, don't waste time criticising the assessor personally or what she did or didn't do (it's your word against hers and birds of a feather etc. etc.) concentrate your energy on the erroneous statements she made in the report and get as much medical evidence as you can to support what you think should have been written - and remember, there is no such thing as 'too much' evidence. Fourth, your MR will be looked at by a different Case Manager (aka decision maker) than the one who made the original decision but usually they tend to uphold what their colleague said. If you don't get a positive result from your MR then your next step will be an appeal, you can post on this forum if you need help with that. And fifth, at the MR both the mobility and daily living components will be looked at not just one. Which could result in you getting a reduction in points for a component you were not disputing.i

    Make a copy of the report, then go through it and underline every error you can find and cross reference it to any medical evidence you sent in. such as the report page 3 states limited right side Dr/specialist report page 2 states limited left side. page 4 of report states I needed no help getting around inside my home GP/social services report page 2 states I need crutches/furniture to move around indoors safely also I cannot move from room to room repeatedly. I always use a wheelchair when outside due to limited left side see Dr/specialist report page 2. Point out that you did not have a bag at the time of the interview. Find every single error and point it out and cross reference it and contradict, even if it seems just a little thing such as spelling mistake or the colour of your jumper. Good luck x
