    Welcome to the community @MARTINA55

    We have a PIP category here and some videos and information about the PIP appeal process that might help you? 

    The process of appeal looks like this:

    • Ask DWP to look at the decision again – this is called a mandatory reconsideration.
    • It's best to do this in writing and give reasons why you disagree. The address to write to is on the decision letter you have received.
    • You must do this within a month of the date of the original decision.

    DWP will look at your claim and tell you their new decision.

    • You have a month to ask for an appeal if you are still unhappy.
    • This must be in writing and it's best to appeal using form SSCS1 (pdf download). Download the pdf of guidance notes to help you.
    • You must state your reason for the appeal clearly and forward any supporting evidence as soon as possible – do not wait for the hearing.

    If you need advice on completing this you may call HMCTS on 0300 123 1142.

    You can download Form SSCS1 (pdf)  or get a paper copy from your local Citizen's Advice Bureau and Jobcentre Plus office.

    You must complete sections 1, 2, 5, 6 and 8. Use black ink and block capitals.

    Section 5 is where you must state your reasons for your appeal. You must write down the reasons why you think the decision is wrong. Your reasons do not have to be lengthy or written in legal language, but you need to say more than just 'I disagree'. Explain simply why you think the decision is incorrect and what you believe the correct decision should be.

    Send your appeal to HM Courts and Tribunals Service. If you live in England or Wales you should send your appeal to:

    HMCTS SSCS Appeals Centre
    PO Box 1203
    Bradford
    BD1 9WP

    Telephone: 0300 123 1142

    Don't forget to sign the form and enclose your mandatory reconsideration decision letter.
