    Hi,

    We could only guess what they wanted, i'm afraid you'll have to wait for them to ring you back. Hopefully it's good news.

    You should send any new evidence to the tribunal who will then send a copy to DWP, it won't harm your claim to send a copy to the DWP as well
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Why have you refused the offer? Personally I would have taken what they offered and continued with the appeal.

    Because they offered just 2 more points for daily living from 6 to 8 nothing for mobility which that's more the reason why I've claimed for pip ive so much evidence to support it just sent some more evidence today to tribunal and dwp I should of been awarded 16 on living and 14 on mobility so I'm off to tribunal

    If that is what you think you are entitled to and can evidence the relevant descriptors then fine. But why turn down a standard care award of £59 a week when you would get that money now AND still continue with your appeal. Money cannot then be the reason why you made the claim in the first place

    Dwp said they would give me standard if I dropped tribunal I have got evidence re all disciptors just hoping that the last load of evidence they received today they will read and make a new offer that I think I need on mobility

    Disgusting trying to blackmail you.
    Actually you can tell them anything so that you get some award now. You can promise the sky.
    But once the award is in payment you can have second thoughts and tell them that you intend to continue with the appeal. Not a thing that they can do about it. Play them at their own game so to speak.

    Yes that's what I thought I'll have to see if dwp call me again with different award but them ringing me I think just proves they got the desition wrong twice I have a part time job which have done for 27yrs my work have been excellent with changing my role and addaptations for my mobility etc that's why I'm in no rush to except the lowest award they offered and think it will be a learning process for me to follow this to tribunal  for the next time it starts again
