Pip appeal

jameshitchkin221jameshitchkin221 Member Posts: 11 Listener
Hello just looking for some advice so I won my appeal my letter says the appeal is allowed then below says the secretary of states decision on the 1/1/17 is set aside but the tribunal seem to have made a typo error cause the secretary of states decision was actually on 1/1/18. Will this affect anything just a little typo error the date they owe me money from is correct but just that part where it says the secretary of states decision is a wrong date clearly just a typo error do you think this will get in the way with anything? Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Great news! Yes, this may affect how long it will take to backdate the money they owe you. DWP will most likely contact HMCTS to confirm the dates.

    Hi,

    The Disability Rights Handbook states: 

    "Correcting an accidental error - An accidental error in the decision of an appeal tribunal can be corrected at any time. Arithmetic or clerical errors can be corrected in this way  (eg if it is clear that the tribunal accidentally gave the wrong starting date for an award of the benefit).Write to HM Courts and Tribunal Services.
