Pip mandatory reconsideration

penpo Community member Posts: 59 Listener
Hi have been here before however my question is, I had to reapply on tribunals suggestion as conditions have altered where I got 6 points for standard living. Re applied where again 6 points however they dwp gave me 6 points also but for different things that the tribunal gave me back in October 2023, the tribunal gave me 2 points for needing a kitchen aid dwp did not which with the other points this time round would hut the 8 point acceptance total. We have again requested tribunal is it usual for dwp to ignore the points the tribunal gave only 6 months ago.  Thank you

    You need at least 8 points for standard award so 6 points will be no award. DWP do not always agree with the Tribunal if you report changes.

    What you could have done, (if you didn't) was send in your Tribunal decision letter as evidence when you reported changes. 

    If you used the same evidence you used for your first claim then yes, you'll very likely be refused again. Have you ever got some expert advice from an agency near you? If not then start here. welfare-benefits

    Are you either appearing in person or having a telephone/video hearing? Either of those will give you the best chance of a decision in your favour. Paper based hearings have a much less chance of success. 
    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.
