Appealing Length Of Award For PIP (Severe Anxiety/Depression)

keirakeira Member Posts: 136 Courageous
Are there any grounds for appealing the length of PIP awards for these conditions? I'm talking about someone with long standing conditions who has exhausted CBT/medication treatments and these have been unhelpful.

    Not that i know of. If this was the case then everyone would appeal this. There's thousands of claimants in exactly the same boat as this person.
    Community champion and proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice i have given to members here on the community.

    You can only appeal on the grounds of an error in law and not that you don't like the decision. What grounds exactly would you be appealing on? You couldn't just appeal because it's not long enough.

    I think it would be hard for the DWP to argue against a date that the tribunal had set!

    I hope you are right!  It remains to be seen whether DWP do review claims prior to the dates set by tribunals.  Should be interesting.
