Tribunal appeal for pip

Kara53Kara53 Member Posts: 12 Connected
I had and won my appeal yesterday  :) I would urge anyone who has been refused pip and get to this stage, Its not the most pleasant experience or the worst but if you win its worth it, even if you feel as though you couldnt go through it  do it. I got to that stage myself and now that I won i am glad i went through it.So please dont be scared just do it  :)

    I had tribunal yesterday and failed.  After waiting for over a year, the panel didnt ask if I had anything to say.  Touched on things that hadnt occurred to me before.  Why was I still driving after having a stroke - I havent had a stroke. I was asked about my typical day over a year ago! Completely skewed.  Im not sure how ill one has to be to be recognised as being worthy of even the basic amount...

    A Tribunal can only take into consideration how you were at the time of the decision. You need to request the statement of reasons and record of proceedings and you have 1 month from the date of the decision to request this. From there you need to find someone who can take a look at these to see if there's an error in law made in making the decision. If there isn't then you won't be able to take it further.

    Requesting the statement of reasons doesn't mean they're appealing the decision. It just means they've requested the SOR. They can't appeal without finding the error in law.
