PIP Mandatory Reconsideration Request Letter Tool

Hi all,

just spotted this useful tool - it might help some fighting the DWP:

"Welcome to our Mandatory Reconsideration Request Letter Tool. We hope this will make it easier for you to ask the DWP to look again at their decision about your claim for Personal Independence Payment.

We hope that by using this tool you will have the best chance of the DWP changing their decision at this stage. But if they don’t, you can go on to appeal the decision. In fact, you can use the letter created by this tool to make your case for your appeal."

This is a much easier way to generate a letter or submission - I wonder why the PIP application isn’t online like this?

All the best.

Thankyou for this PJ.


There is also a guide which has important info not widely advertised by the DWP - about 13 months to ask for a PIP decision appeal.

So not just the one month deadline we hear about.

"‘What if I’ve missed the deadline?’ If you’ve missed the deadline to ask for a mandatory reconsideration, you can still ask but they don’t have to accept it. If the delay was unavoidable or a result of your disability (for example, if you were unable to deal with it until now because you need help to deal with your post) it will help if you explain that. Longer delays will need better excuses. Similarly if you miss the deadline to appeal, you can ask for an appeal anyway. You will need to explain your reasons for missing the deadline. A judge will then decide whether to allow the appeal even if it is late. Your appeal will only definitely not be accepted if 13 months have passed since you were sent the decision." (page 10)

This looks like a very useful tool. Thanks for that PJday.
