    HI and welcome,

    I'm a community champion here on scope and i help and advise others with the complex benefit system.

    Unfortunately, waiting times for Tribunal hearings are huge across most of the country and lots of people are waiting a year for a hearing date. Once the Tribunal accept your appeal you can contact then to ask what the waiting times are for your area and they'll give you a guideline but do remember that it will just be an estimate.

    Hi @jamie76 and welcome to the community. 
    I'm sorry you're having to appeal your PIP decision again. Unfortunately, waiting times are huge across the country so a year does seem about right. :(
