    Hi @ronald, and welcome to the community!

    So sorry to hear this. When did you receive your PIP decision, and have you begun the appeals process? Take a look at our advice on DWP appeals, and do come back to us with any questions.

    Hi and thank you 
    No I have left it to late to appeal as I didn't read the letter properly .....would it be better to restart a new claim or go back to them to add stuff

    Hi ronald and welcome

    When did you receive your decision ?
    It is possible to make a late appeal with good cause
    How long is your current award for ?
    Normally if you have an award in payment then you can apply for a change in circumstance if you have a new or wortened condition

    You can apply to your local council for a Blue Badge under certain circumstances, who may assess you

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

    You have an absolute maximum of 13 months to do an MR or an appeal. It would be a poor idea to do a new claim and could cost you dearly if the original claim can still be challenged.

    You DO NOT need good cause for a late appeal. You simply need to show that the claim itself has merit and is not hopeless. Whilst HMCTS will ask you to explain why it’s late they do that simply to give DWP a chance to object to the appeal being accepted as a late appeal. HMCTS default position is to accept all late appeals where the case has merit and DWP don’t object. DWP almost never object as their backlogs are so huge they can barely produce competent appeal papers. 

    This is because the Trubunal Regs introduced an overriding principles section and the one about fairness pretty much trumps everything.
