    Before DWP respond they review all the evidence you sent and may ring to ask some further questions. 

    They may then offer you an award. If you accept that offer your current appeal will lapse. You can then wait for that to be put into payment and then request the Tribunal again but the timescale will start from the beginning again. 

    I’m not saying this is what they wanted to speak to you for but it has been known for them to do this. 
    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.

    So if they were to award me standard for daily living I could accept that and still go to tribunal to try for enhanced?
    and if I did that could I possibly lose what I already have if that makes sense

    That's right @skyladawn, but as Poppy mentioned it would start from the beginning again, which means there is a chance you could lose what you have, you could be offered enhanced, or it would stay at standard. 

    Does that make sense? :)

    If there's any chance of losing what you already have HMCTS will usually warn you first by either sending you a letter or telling you on the day of the hearing. This will then give you the chance to cancel the hearing and continue with the award you already have.

    Oh ok thank you makes perfect sense
    also another quick question I applied for PIP years ago didn’t get it
    applied again October last year again, am I right in what I read somewhere that if I am awarded anything then it won’t get backdated as it’s not a first claim?

    You have read incorrectly. If awarded it will be paid from when you applied in October.

    What you read may have been related to someone transferring from DLA. In this case there would be no money owed.
