    Hi @beves and welcome to the community. Glad to have you with us. And I'm sorry to read you're having such a struggle.
    I'm not an authority on PIP but we do have people here who are and they will get back to you soon. For the moment I'm going to try to place a tag in here which I think may get the attention of somebody knowledgeable. @BenefitsTrainingCo
    Bear with us.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hi Beves

    First of don't panic
    Ring the tribunal clerk and explain, it shoulsdn't be a problem with an extension as the waiting time for hearings is months rather than weeks

    Hi Beves
    No problem
    No you keep the bundle but in your written submission. As soon as you can send your submission you should do so but you can still submit further eidence up to 7 days befor the hearing.
    Use the bundle to reference by page and paragraph every descriptor you are challenging. I have a posting on

    http://www.youreable.com

     it is a sticky " appeals do not have to be scary " which may help

    Please do come back with any questions
