    If the reasons you're claiming it contradict the reason for your PIP then yes they can. For example, if you're claiming for a physical disability and you're caring for someone that also has the same disability, it can go against you.

    Hi,

    This can happen yes, if they feel there isn't enough of evidence. Hopefully you'll have another date soon. Good luck.

    Absolutely right Poppy. In fact there are recorded instances where the Presenting Officer (for the DWP) becomes aware that the PIP claimant is also claiming CA he/she will attempt to direct the appeal panel to consider refusing the appeal on those grounds. It is not unheard of for the PO to question the claimant on the validity of the CA claim.
