When do you hear the results of a tribunal?

i had my court date today which I’ve waited for since December. I was in there over two hours and then said they would write to me with the answer. Where I was told I’d get told today does this mean it’s a straight no and didn’t want to say to my face or do I still have a chance of getting pip as really really worried now as all in all it’s next month would be a year since applying

    Thank you. It’s just been all so stressful and now being left to wait again is to much

    Not a problem @2018, I am not surprised it is stressful! I know many others will be able to relate to your experiences

    Hi,

    Sometimes it's not possible to make a decision on the day of the hearing and not everyone has their decision on the day. If it's not possible they write to you within a few days with the decision. It doesn't mean anything other than they couldn't make a decision today. Hopefully it's good news for you and you'll have that decision by the middle of this week. Good luck.

    Thank you for all your time so it’s more likely going to come back as a no then as  don’t u need 8 points to get any help from them

    No one can predict what the decision will be. For PIP you need at least 8 points in either of the parts for an award, there's 2 parts to PIP daily living and mobility. 8 points for standard and 12 for enhanced.

    I didn’t get my appeal decision on the day either, I waited a few days then called the tribunal number and asked for them to tell me over the phone, which they did.

    i won my appeal so don’t give up hope yet @2018

    Thank you that gives me a little hope it’s the question they kept asking me over the two hours confused me so much I have drop alarm a blue badge the house is getting changed to help me but all they kept asking was when did I call an amblance last for a fall. It’s been years cos I don’t bother anymore. Felt like they didn’t believe I was in pain the man kept saying u look Comfortable when I was in pain.
