Hi I've been reading recently that people only scored 0 or 2 points for the engaging with other people question,and alot of people are getting back payments because they should have had more points,I've also heard if you recived pip after a tribunal then you won't be entitled to any back pay,can anyone confirm this please?and should I phone pip on Monday to see if I'm eligible or not?thanks

    You haven’t really given any information for anyone to be able to advise you. 

    The law changed for claims after 6th April 2016.

    It will not apply if a Tribunal made a decision on your claim after that date.

    It also applied to all decisions after 17th September 2020 so if the decision was made on your claim after that then they will not review your claim. 

    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.

    Because a Tribunal would have applied the law correctly after 6th April 2016.

    Hi @sarge19846 - I'd think that the DWP are only looking at decisions they made within the timeframe poppy has mentioned. As a tribunal is completely separate from the DWP, then those decisions made by them aren't looked at, as the link above says. Does that now make sense?
