Hi had a appeal on Tuesday  after my pip was stopped in Aug last year and had a letter today and I  was successful in the appeal !! I am so relieved it's been stressful and just glad it's over with !!! My advice for anyone going through this is get as much medical evidence from any medical professionals as possible letters from doctors therapist carers and try not to get to worked up the actual appeal isn't that bad . And most important DON'T GIVE UP !!

    Hi all I had my tribunal on the 9/12/2018 and I waited no more then a month for my paper based to go to tribunal so was pretty lucky 
    I went from no daily living to standard living and from standard mobility to enhanced mobility 
    Pip received my decision on the 10th of Jan and I called in last week and said it was with the appeals team to sort out backdated payments so if all goes well I wud receive my payment by next week sometime so all in all no longer then 4 weeks from tribunal to pip to payment
    So it's another good story I thought I'd share
