Hello , I won my tribunal appeal for pip,that was three weeks ago.I called to ask how long would it be before hearing from them ,and was abruptly told 6 weeks ? Is this correct ? As I understood the dwp had 28 days .Confused,as I know they is every possibility they are going to ask for SOR. If they do ,does anyone know how much more time they have ? Appreciate any advice.

    DWP have 28 days to ask for an SOR and if they were you'd probably have heard by now.  It may well be that because of backlogs it now takes six weeks from hearing date before you start getting the regular payments and the arrears.  Phone them every week or so for an update.

    Hi, you need to take into consideration the Xmas and New year closing days too, plus the backlogs. You could well be looking at 6 weeks or more.

    Thankyou ,it just seems such along wait.So in 6 weeks I maybe will hear something ,I feel iam in for a long wait as they may reply with a letter not making a payment but informing me that they are asking for a SOR which I hear can take another month or so .Iam pleased I won my appeal but the dwp really do need to change their system .

    The people that work for the dwp are not worried about people’s problems they are only concerned about their own  lives it’s so difficult to watch people suffering because the governments are targeting the poor and leaving the rich to build up they’re empires and get away with their millions that they could never spend in they’re lifetimes while more people are homeless and getting closer to starvation there are more and more people struggling and suffering every year good luck! Happy? 2018!

    I had an assessment having been transferred to pip from dla. I was awarded low rate mobility and middle rate care whilst on did. After the assessors report she scored me 0 which was ridiculous. I then went to tribunal and was awarded enhanced on both elements. People are going to have to stand up to these assessors who tell only a big bunch of lies. We are going to have to protest outside Downing Street because it is verging on the ridiculous. They have no intention of giving points to anyone and couldn't care less about people's suffering. It is a waste of time with these Atos or Capita assessors. They aren't even medically trained.something has got to be done.

    They have 1 month to ask for the SOR, as it's close to the for you now and you haven't received a letter then i doubt this will be happening. They do sometimes make people wait longer than others for their money, i have no idea why.

    An assessor gives an opinion and not a statement of fact. Just because you say something either on the claim form or at the face to face assessment doesn't make it acceptable even if you produce medical evidence. They are free to decide what to believe.
    They don't need to be medically trained, they are not looking at your conditions. They are simply disability analysts that are governed by what the computer software asks and reports.

    If the thread hadn't been commented on previously by Zak then i wouldn't have commented. I think it's time to hit the ignore button...good day to you!

    The point I am making is the lies they tell. When I asked for the assessment report it was full of untruths. I couldn't believe it. There were things in it that I never said. I have heard if Labour get into power they will do away with these assessors from Atos and Capita and will go by GP's Consultants reports. They are putting people who are going through enough pain unnecessary stress. It's true what the person above stated. They are for the rich who are getting richer. They don't care about the poorest of society. They should start taxing the rich more and stop picking on the most vulnerable of  our society.

    Politics has no place in assessing people who want state help. For a start the report from the assessor is not a statement of cat. It is nothing more than one person's opinion and is no better or worse than what my opinion would be.

    As a politician in my own right (Independent) I would never believe anything that any political party says especially about what they would do if voted into power. They have a habit of changing their minds.

    I agree with you Yadnad on both points. That assessor who assessed me took away my DLA entitlement giving me 0 points. The point I am making is they are playing with people's lives. They have no experience of people's illnesses. Personally I think this should be against the law. After you give your information they put the complete opposite on the form. They have done this to so many people and the problem is DWP believe them. I'm so glad Citizens Advice Bureau know the law and are very helpful.

    They really don't need to know much about illnesses. They are there to write an opinion on whether you fit the descriptors. They work on the basis that you could be telling them a load of porky pies. They aren't interested in the evidence either - as was said to me when I tried to hand more over at the face to face - nothing to do with me - the office deals with that.
    The assessor will write what they think.
    You are lucky to get someone to fight your corner for you. Many can't get any help from anywhere.
    I have never been able to get the help I needed so did the job myself which as it turns out has been a complete disaster.

    I'm really sorry to hear that. I went to a Citizen's Advice drop in centre. There must be one near you. I just felt like giving up. They were so helpful. They write a submission to the court stating why you should be entitled to your benefit and the particular descriptors which should apply to you. I was really stressed at the Tribunal and couldn't hardly speak my mouth was so dry. I just told them the truth and I'm so glad they believed me.
