    Hi @tambo76, when did he apply? You mentioned 15 months ago, so I assume is was around Feburary-March 2023 that he applied?

    There was a High Tribunal Result in march 2023 which was related to when PIP awards could be dated. I think if it is indeed referring to this you may need to ask a benefits specialist about the case and what it means. I am not a benefits specialist and wouldn't feel comfortable telling you what I think certain case history means for you!

    If you feel comfortable you could type exactly what the letter says (but please leave out any personal information!)

    Hi tambo and congratulations to you both!

    the decision made March 2023 by the Secretary of State is set aside.

    The SoS on your Decision Notice means the DWP - sorry to contradict you, Jimm.

    An adverse decision was made in March 2023 and the Tribunal has reversed this. What exactly is stated for those two decision dates?

    @WhatThe If I am wrong feel free to correct me! I could see a decision was made in March of 2023 by a tribunal is all, I figured it was referring to something like that. Thank you for your insight!

    Set aside means reversed.

    What was the decision of 15/03/2023? I'm confused now

    The dates seem wrong. SoS made a decision on 15/03/2023 and Tribunal set that decision aside and awarded from 28/02/2024 but that can't be correct and to me that should be 15/03/2023.

    I would advise you to contact HMCTS and ask them because if there's an error in the dates then DWP will not put the award into payment and will not pay what is owed until that's corrected. DWP will also contact HMCTS for the correction to be made, if it's an error.

    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.
