    MR correct result wrong reasons.

    As per title. I won the MR. I Went from standard rate to enhanced with the daily living component.

    Still given no points for my inability to engage with other people?

    DM doesn't agree I have this problem despite having shown irrefutable medical evidence stating that I do and that the condition is incurable? It's like banging your head against a brick wall?

    What are my options? Is there any point ? Thank you.

    There's no point, you can't get better than enhanced so there is nothing to MR/appeal.

    He may not be disagreeing with you, just not needing to consider it. Once it's clear from other things that you qualify for enhanced then there is no need to consider any more points.

    It's like with ESA, if it's clear from the outset that you should be in Support Group then there is no sense in going through all the points scoring for WRAG, so they don't do the points and simply award SG.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    The court also told me this. I argued that the points were too low. But was told enhanced is enhanced. Here's the problem - it is easier for the next DWP employee come review time to dock 3 points and you end up the standard bracket, than it would be if your points were accurate. Also - if your illness eases up a bit and your start being able to work - they have to justify that change by reducing the points - if your points weren't where they should have been and you are scored close to the cut off that can have a huge effect on your ability to manage.

    Just my 2 cents.

    My problem is this however and I appreciate what has been suggested already. The DM specifically stated he didn't think I had any difficulty engaging with people face to face despite me providing irrefutable evidence stating I have a combined brain/mental disorder that prevents it. The DM is refuting the testimony of both an expert specialist who diagnosed the condition and a CBT who indicated that it was incurable. No points awarded.
