    Hi @Elle1998 my sisters brother was suppose to go tribunal ........ had all the paperwork in the world , a few weeks before he was suppose to go to tribunal they called him up and gave him enhanced rate for both components. obviously I’m going saying DWP will call every person up and award them it before they go court. but it does happen! he’s been paid now 8.4K and has been awarded it for 5 years!!!! As long it you go off the descriptors and fit in them you should be fine. a neighbour worked as a decision maker down my road and he said we are not medically trained, also he said 9/10 DWP don’t bother going to the tribunal. hope that helps.
