Evening, I have been on DLA for the last 20 years.I received the higher rate mobility and the lowest rate care. I had the new PIP assessment in September and was awarded 6 points for care and 4 points for mobility (so am not entitled to anything) .I asked for a MR review which came back with the same points. I am now taking it to tribunal, (which I have been told the waiting list is about 6 months). I received a letter from my doctor saying he supports my claim for PIP and that I am not fit for work. I have just sent the letter off the the tribunal. Does anyone have any experience of the tribunal receiving letters/ evidence and making a decision without the case going to / waiting for tribunal date ? Thanks
