    You can ask Tribunal Clerk for a Statement of Reasons (SOR) for the Tribunal's decision.  The judge will write the SOR.  If the SOR indicates an error of law, which in fact is very unlikely, you can appeal to an Upper Tier Tribunal.  When you get the SOR you can ask in Ask a benefits advisor category whether the SOR indicates an error of law.
