    Hi. I have the same problem. I was waiting over a year for a tribunal date and then got the 30th Jan 2019. On the morning of the tribunal, they rang to say that it had been adjourned. They said that the medical evidence I had sent wasn't up to date and they also needed all my old DLA papers from 14 years ago. I didn't know that they needed the DLA papers and I wasn't asked for them. After all, they say PIP isn't the same as DLA! I had to sign a paper to give the Tribunal Services the authority to obtain the extra evidence needed. I have recieved the copies back from them but still no new hearing date.. I am hoping that they will get back to me sometime this year!!!

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, there's nothing more you can do but wait. Hopefully you'll receive a letter with another date soon.

    Hi @misstracey. Have got the date through, for your tribunal? I have just got mine through. It is for the end of July 2019. My daughter was going to go with me to my tribunal in January and had booked the day off work. However this time,she is on holiday and will be away, when my next one is scheduled, so I hope that I can arrange for someone to go with me. I will wish you luck when your tribunal comes along. Let us know how it goes. xx
