Pip tribunal soon

nlindenjnlindenj Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi all, 
I have my pip tribunal on the 30th on Nov. I have a meeting with my Cab contact on the 16th of Nov to go through what will happen and to send in any evidence. In the meantime while waiting for a date I have been awarded Lcwwra from a Mr decision. I was wondering if this will have any bearing on the decision for my pip tribunal? I was awarded 15 points for 'consuness' with risk being taken into consideration on certain discriptors from the lcwwra. In the pip assessment I scored 0 points across the board. I suffer from tonic clonic epilepsy.

    As misscloe said don't worry about mis-spelling and fully understandable if you have uncontrolled epilepsy. Good luck with your appeal remember though having epilepsy doesn't mean you're entitled to PIP as it's based on your care/support needs and normally your condition has to be uncontrolled. There is also the 50% rule where you must require care and support at least 50% of the time. i'm guessing you meet this criteria as CAB have been helping you. My wife has severe epilepsy too, but a copy of her care plan through adult social care helped our claim. Good Luck.
