    You can request the Tribunal here. https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal You just need to give a brief reason why you disagree with the decision. Anything you've already sent to DWP to support your claim doesn't need to be sent again because they will receive everything from DWP.
    Any extra supporting evidence can be sent at a later date.
    The only downside is it could be several months before you have a hearing date. It's always better to either appear in person or have a telephone/video hearing.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    That is disappointing, but not all doom and gloom, 73% succeed at Appeal stage. I've provided advice on Appealing on your other thread.
