Hi all, I am currently in the process of appealing the dwp decision. I suffer from depression and degenerative disc disease. I’m also being examined for me loosing my balance. I have received the paperwork from DWP and they have requested that I don’t get my Tribuneral. This is all affecting my mental state. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi @Jamesluton and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm really sorry to hear about all your health issues and your current situation with DWP.  I can appreciate that their decision must be quite upsetting and stressful for you.  Is it PIP you are appealing for?  I wish you well with your appeal and please let us know how you get on.  The site has very good information on various benefits including appeals and tribunals if you want to take a look.  You can type in whichever benefit you are claiming for in the search panel at the top right-hand corner of the screen.  I'm not an expert on benefits myself, sorry, but other members or the Scope Team may be able to advise you better and if so will post here.  Meantime, I know it is easy for me to say, but please try not to worry.  We are all here for you on the Community and can support you through this process.  Please feel free to chat to us anytime if you need to as there will always be someone on here to listen.  All the best.  :smile:

    Hi @Jamesluton - Welcome to the community from me too, & thank you for joining us all. I'm sorry to read about your continuing health issues. As Ails says, is your appeal about PIP, or another benefit? The good thing about tribunals is that they are totally independent of the DWP & will make their own decision, so please try not to worry about that. So please say how we may help. What advice do you need right now? We have several members & also a knowledgeable Scope team, who will be most willing to help about any benefits. Any questions are absolutely fine. :)
