Pip tribunal wait and coronavirus
Evening. I'm currently on week 51 of waiting for a tribunal for pip appeal. My question is,with the coronavirus and being told to stay indoors,no going out unless to get food once a week,exercise once a day with family you live with or as a key worker,if I get a date through in the next few months as the current average waiting time in my area is 59 weeks,will it be by phone because I can't go over and risk taking the coronavirus back to my parents who are in their 70s with health problems? I need to isolate completely due to my parents,and going to the supermarket is out of the question,even was before this due to depression,anxiety and ocd. Crowds are a trigger of mine,very overwhelming to the point of frustration,feeling irritable and tears where I have to remove myself because I have visions of hurting someone. Thank you.
