PIP tribunal questions for mental health

JazCoJazCo Member Posts: 48 Courageous
I know they're all different, but I like to get some idea. Anyone with anxiety or depression based mental health difficulties, specifically?

    Hi,

    It will totally depend on how your conditions affect. No one can tell you what questions they will ask you because no one knows anything about your case.

    Is someone going with you?

    I understand that, but I guess it's more to get a feel of how they word certain things? Are the straightforward? Are they closely related to the PIP form Q's? Etc. Yeah, my partner, who is also my acting representative, is going with me.

    The questions will be related to the PIP descriptors and how your conditions affect you against these.

    Hi @JazCo
    Just be honest and if a descriptor applies to you try and give an example of the difficulty you had when last performing the particular task.

    Even though your partner is your representative, unless they are your appointee then the panel will expect you to answer all the questions. They may ask them at the end if there's anything they want to add but this doesn't always happen.

    You should also make sure that any extra evidence you have is sent to HMCTS to arrive no later than 10 days before the hearing date.
