Good Morning 
I wondered if any one has won there pip tribunal only to have dwp request a statement of reason .I can't find much out about this .How often does this happen? What is the process now ? How many go to the upper tier tribunal. 
Its all very upsetting and I M so confused by it all .Worst thing is just not even knowing this could happen .
Thank you everyone 💓

    Has this happened to you? The reason you can’t find much about this is because it’s rare they request them. It’s even more rare for them to appeal the decision. They can’t appeal it without first finding the error in law. 

    They have as much chance as we do to appeal the decision. 
    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.

    That’s extremely quick for them to decide to request that. There’s no timescales how long it will take a judge to write that as it’s done in their own spare time. 

    It’s always been possible for anyone including DWP to request the SOR and ROP. 

    Was it someone from the PIP call centre that told you they requested them?

    Thank you 😊 
    Spoke to pip today .The reason is that my son helps me with  budgeting ect has my permission to speak to anyone and deal with anything .
    Now apparently because I applied for a loan and Son dord not have power of attorney I shouldn't of been award those 2 points .The judges didn't give those points that was given by my mandatory reconsideration. So this is the reason. Apparently dwp put it straight in on the day I won the tribunal  xx

    Very strange because PIP is about the majority of the time so doing something once doesn't indicate you're able to complete that activity the majority the time. 

    Please remember that although they have requested the SOR and ROP this doesn't mean they will appeal the decision.

    It will be extremely difficult to find that error in law if you don't know what you're looking for. Though, it's very rare for DWP to appeal a decision.

    Hi everyone a quick update. My pip new award is now in place to start in May so dwp have received the sor and not taken it to the upper tier  .So now apparently any arrears won by tribunal automatically go to debt management. They have 14 days then you can be paid anything outstanding .So nearly there xxx
