Hi all I was wondering how long it should take universal credit to send there evidence to the tribunal as I sent in my appeal to them with help from community law and I received a letter from the first tier tribunal saying that they received it on the 2nd of August this year and they would write to the dwp for them to prepare there paperwork ! while all that was going on I had a pip assessment on the 5th of August and on Monday I was told I would stay on standard care of pip but they have awarded me enhanced mobility so I called the tribunal on Tuesday 17th of September to ask if there was a date set for my hearing to get on the support group for universal credit as universal credit have deemed me fit for work and scored me 0 points and the same 0 points after my mandatory reconsideration appeal of which was a disgrace of a decision if am honest ! anyway the person at the tribunal told me that they had to write to the dwp to ask for there paperwork and I asked her if the dwp had asked for a an extension to get it in to the tribunal and she said no ! I am under the impression that you have 28 days to get your appeal in so does that not apply to the dwp also as that's been 7 weeks since I received my letter from the tribunal the same as the dwp would have what would be the outcome and timescale for the dwp to send in there paperwork as I think this is unfair that I get 28 days and yet it's been nearly 7 weeks and the dwp haven't sent there's in and the tribunal have had to send the dwp a reminder as this isn't fair that they can drag there heels and take all the time in the world and that seems to be ok with the courts but people like me only get 28 days can someone put some light on this matter thanks ?
