PIP Tribunal- Appeal Success

Hi all,

just wanted to give some words of encouragement for anyone who might need it.

I previously lost my entitlement when my DLA was up for change over to PIP in August 2017. I was scored 1 point upon assessment. 

Over the past 2 years I have been through the process, mandatory reconsideration, appeal request, first tribunal date, to have a full on panic attack when seated to be told it’s being adjourned for a medical records request! 

Today I finally had the 2nd date appeal, it was gruelling, extremely emotional but the panel were so supportive and comforting.

I thankfully won the appeal, going from 1 point to 26. 

I didn’t want to go today and very nearly didn’t, now I am glad I fought until the end.

Believe in yourselves!
