Tribunal timeline

YickerYicker Member Posts: 4 Listener
ive finally received a letter confirming the DWP will be agreeing with the initial assessment and it's going to an independent tribunal. When I rang for a date for my hearing they said it will be over 42 weeks from when I applied to the appeal court.
is this a normal timeline? I live in the north west of England

    Hi,

    There's huge backlogs for most of the country for Tribunals and a lot are waiting in excess of 1 year for a hearing date. The time they tell you is just a guide. Good luck.

    Hi @Yicker Do you mean you've applied  for a Mandatory Reconsideration  and that agreed with your original decision? Tribunal waiting lists vary and I don't think anyone here can tell you whether your time to wait is normal or not. it depends where you live.

    I applied To the independent tribunal on Christmas Eve ( nice present in the post from the DWP ) after the mandatory reconsideration agreed with the assessor.

    42 weeks seems common from what I've read. Sadly I lose my mobility car in a fortnight 😪
