DWP have replied does anyone no how long it takes to book a tribunal date. I have read it can take 10 months is this true. It will be 24 months from when I first applied for PIP if it takes 10 months would I have to have a assessment again straight away if I get it

    Often it can be 8+ months. If awarded when your review date will be will depend on what length of award you will have. Some have shorter lengths, some have longer. 
    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.

    In another comment you said you didn't request the MR for 12 months so this is why it's taking so long. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/comment/755591#Comment_755591

    You will eventually receive the bundle so you will know if they received the evidence you sent because if they did, it will be in there.

    Yeah but I never new the tribunal would be 8 to 10 months that's not my fault if post is slow for MR .The reason it took me so long to ask for MR was because I had to speak to iapt twice as I told them to leave me alone first time they said my problem was to much both times so they sent a letter to psychiatrist I have the letter he sent. Then I got my diagnosis I no it don't go off diagnosis but it backs up what I say about being around people I lived in about 20 different places in 6 years I can finally have peace now im back in my flat theres also cameras now where I live so its quite I am also high risk of getting schizophrenia I don't need more stress waiting on them

    Hi I only applied for MR at 12 months because I had things going on it only took so many weeks for MR I can't remember how many but they did offer me 2 extra weeks because of post but the bloke said it would be better with tribunal but if I waited they could have got evidence. I filled PIP form in with someone I never new over phone she told me what to put it was a health coach for jobs 22 there was things I couldn't tell her that's why I also got declined for lcwra so I filled the form in myself and got it the woman from the lcwra assessment understood why I can't control myself she said she didn't need nothing from my physical health she had enough from mental health
