How do I get the DWP to honour the tribunal's decision?
I have gone through the tribunal process for my PIP claim and not only won it but was awarded 21 points as opposed to the 0 points awarded in my original assessment. During the tribunal I was questioned by an actual qualified doctor with experience in my health condition, as opposed to the paramedic who conducted my original assessment who had no experience with my condition. I could go on for pages about the weeks of distress and financial hardship caused by the DWP stopping my payments in August last year (2016) including having to attend court for non payment of council tax and having been forced into debt with my water supplier for non payment of water bills since last September. It is now 38 days since the tribunal ordered the reinstatement of my PIP payments and I am still waiting, having not received so much as a letter from the DWP. Does anyone out there have a similar experience? Does anyone have advice as to how I get the DWP to honour the tribunal's decision? Thanks
