    Have a look at the Benefits and Work web site and resources. Best thing to do on your appeal is to self-assess using online resources i.e. figure out what points you ought to score and why. Provided they add up to 15+ you have a case. If not then you need face to face advice on whether you have an exceptional circs. case. Either way you just detail the specific points you think you score and then you provide the evidence to support each one.
