    Hi @Nainey and a warm welcome to the community! Had you appealed the original PIP decision? A case can be adjourned if they felt there wasn't enough information or if the panel believed they couldn't make a decision. You should hopefully receive a new date soon! I wish you the very best of luck and please do keep us updated! :)

    I messed up my first tribunal due to not being able to answer questions due to stress and lost my case but fortunately the decision got set aside due to a point of law so i only had to wait another 3 months for a new paper hearing and i won my case
