Received a call from DWP appeal department

Recieved a call today from appeals dept.

Asked me if I have any new evidence I would like to add.

Also, I did not appeal everything I put in my MR due to some stuff not sure about in regards to DWP guidelines.

She asked me if I want to include everything in my appeal that I included in my MR. I asked as long as I can get awarded on some aspects if applicable and other other part gets sent to tribunal if applicable. I.e. not if its appeal is won or loss as a whole.

She said a decision will be made today or tommorow.

    They usually review your claim before responding to the Tribunal. They may (though rarely) offer an award at this stage. 

    If no offer is made then your appeal will just proceed as normal. Even though you said you didn't appeal everything you put in the MR, DWP will send everything to HMCTS anyway, you will then receive a copy of everything in the "bundle"
    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.

    Heya @pip12345, I have nothing to add, other than I'm keeping everything crossed for you. Will you let us know the outcome please? :)

    Text message received

    DWP has responded to your PIP appeal. They should have sent you a copy in the post and you should receive this shortly. Read their response and send any comments to the tribunal, if you have any. The address is on any letters and emails you have received.

    You have told us you do not want to attend your hearing so you will receive the decision in the post. We cannot say know how long this will take but it could be several months.

    I would advise you to attend your hearing either as a telephone/video hearing or in person. Either of those will give you the best chance of a decision in your favour, with about 68% success rate. 

    Paper based hearings have a much less success rate of about 5-8%.

    How do I go about changing it?
