    Welcome to the community @Binkbonk444

    There can be up to 3 stages of appeal, depending on how far you want to go in challenging the DWP’s decision.

    These stages are:

    • mandatory reconsideration
    • a tribunal appeal and hearing
    • further appeals

    If you want to challenge a benefit decision you have 1 calendar month from the date on your decision letter to ask the DWP to reconsider.

    The first step is the Mandatory Reconsideration.

    You can either:

    If you choose to write a letter, include all the information required by the online form.

    You can find a step-by-step guide to appealing a DWP benefits decision here.
