pip appeal for disabled uni student
hi everyone been ages since i last posted. just thought i keep updated. my daughters MR also came back with just 2 points on DL which was the same as the original decision despite sending in further evidence from the GP. Their main reason for refusal was she attends uni so she doesnt need any help despite sending in lothes fof evidence from uni with all the support that is in place for her at uni. she has a support worker who meets her at the entrance of the uni campus and she stays with her until she comes home. she takes notes for my daughter and liases with lecturers on her behalf and the support she has had from us to even get her this far despite all her lecturers. any way i have on friday sent of for her tribunal. Can anyone advise as I am an appointee for my daughter would she still need to attend an hearing or can i go for her. I have already called the helpline for the tribunal and they have advised me that she would not need to attend as i am her appointee and they have said it would't make any difference to the hearing. but any advise from appointee's in the forum would be greatly appreciated. did they attend the hearing on their own or did the person claiming also come. Thanks
