    Get yourself a rough guide to the questions they will ask,And make yourself some notes,Also write a little statement for the end of the interview,So you get your whole point across to them,I had mine a few weeks ago,And I have to say they were very nice,Nothing like going for a face to face with someone who doesn’t have a clue what there doing medically,And speak about your disability from the claim date and how it affected you,If your condition has worsened they just want to know what it was like when you made the claim,Good luck and relax ??

    Why are you going to refuse the Carers  Premium?  I nearly did that and talk about it to my GP as I really did feel that I shouldn't have it, that I had enough with what was DLA!

    But, things are going to be hard after this Virus and Brexit, money will be very tight, so this is what the GP said.  You may feel that you should refuse it but nobody can see into the future and you might need more help.  But, the GP said that if I refuse that benefit and then applied for it later on, the DWP could say  "Sorry, but you refused it before, and now we can't help you, as the government has changed the system yet again, so you're no longer entitled to that benefit ".  If they award you Carers Premium, take it!

    Hi and welcome good luck for the tribunal

    Have a look through your bundle and your original application in advance and make notes to point out how you think you should have scored against the descriptors and how it is hen you complete the task in question eg what happened when you last tried to do it, how often you can complete it, any aids or assistance you need. 

    As mentioned before they are only interested in your condition at the time you applied as that is what you are appealing about.

    It is a good idea to prepare a statement as they will ask if there is anything you want to add at the end

    Good luck and fingers crossed for you

    The whole process from start to finish is a nightmare when claiming, but trying remember pip appeals have a good success rate ?
