as title i am awaiting my tribunal to say i am terrified is an understatement, from filling the form in on April 2017 to now and still no tribunal date, i read somewhere that just before your tribunal the dwp look again at your claim is this correct ?

    Hi missm

    Whilst you should take account of the post you see on this forum, it's important to understand that whilst many of these are from claimants who are having problems with their claims they actually represent only a small proportion of claims. The reality is that most claims are processed trouble free.

    It is likely that the DWP will look at your claim in the week before your hearing, in some cases this can lead to an improved offer but in most cases nothing will be heard and your claim will proceed to hearing


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

    It's true, @missm.  I had no mental health problems before I went through the PIP process but I'm not sure that was still true when I came out the other end ;).  Putting us through PIP can make our health worse and so maybe make us more eligible for it.
