    Hi Herman and welcome

    Is this for PIP ?

    Normally the first stage to appealing a decision is to ask for a mandatory reconsideration and this should be done within one month of the date of the decision letter unless you can show good reason why it is late.

    The next stage is to appeal to an independant tribunal.

    There is lots of info on this site about the process, please have a read and come back with any questions

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
