    It’s what’s known as a the “bundle.” It will contain everything you’ve already sent, including the PIP2 form, all your evidence and the response from DWP. 

    You should have checked through all of it to make sure everything is there. 
    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.

    I totally understand that. You really do need to check through it before the hearing tomorrow to make sure everything is there.

    Don't be too alarmed if you don't have the decision tomorrow because sometimes they can't tell you on the day. It doesn't mean anything other than this. They will send you the decision letter, which you should receive within a few days. Lots of people don't have decisions on the day and go on to be awarded.

    Good luck.
