    Unhappy PIP Mandatory reconsideration.

    Hi there,

    I am new to the forum, I currently claim PIP enhanced daily living element for mental health reasons but during the time I applied it was deemed that I was not eligible for the mobility element however since then there was a court case or some such which said people can't be discriminated against regarding mental health issues and mobility.

    I have received a letter as they had reviewed my case and still deemed me ineligible for mobility component only scoring 4 points.

    I wish to challenge this and have started a small letter but I am unsure what I need to include as there isn't an awful lot to say on the matter, I intend to get a supporting letter from my community psychiatric nurse and would just like some advice if possible please.

    here is what I had started to write:

    "To whom it may concern,

    I disagree with the recent decision regarding the mobility aspect of my PIP claim. I do not believe the full facts have been taken into account.

    I cannot leave the house without support from my wife (carer), mother or community psychiatric nurse as it would cause overwhelming anxiety and psychological distress to me.

    As a result of this I am unable to undertake new journeys, unplanned journeys or familiar journeys alone."

    any advice / guidance greatly appreciated.

    - Stephen

    That all sounds fair enough, you don't need to go into great detail

    If you can get a letter to support that you can't go out alone, best would be from your CPN as you intend to do.

    I would add after 'To whom it may concern,'

    "Mandatory Reconsideration."

    In bold and underlined like that.

    Then add to the first line:
    "....... full facts have been taken into account and so I am requesting a Mandatory Reconsideration of the decision."

    Then I'd just finish what you have already written with something like:
    "I enclose a letter from my Comunity Psychiatric Nurse {or whoever wrote it} to support that I cannot undertake journeys alone."

    Enclose a copy of the letter (not the original) with your NI number written on the top, sign it and send it off to the address given on your decision letter.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
