Request for leave to The Social Security Commissioners

rbzrbz Member Posts: 96 Courageous
Recently requested for leave to The Social Security Commissioners, because of some problems during Appeal hearing.
Please let me know The Appeals Service will send copy of my request to DWP?

    You can only appeal to the upper tribunal on a point of law.

    I know about this, but I asked about The Appeals Service will send copy of Request for leave to The Social Security Commissioners to DWP?

    Social Security Commissioners haven’t existed for years. You’re talking Upper Tribunal.

    Your initial request goes to your regional HMCTS. It only gets passed to the UT if leave is granted. Only if leave is granted will DWP be notified that an application has been made.

    Thanks for answer. 
    I posted my application with grounds for appeal to The Appeals Service, they respond that my papers was referred to a legally qualified member for determination.

    Yes, that’s correct. Local judge first. If they give you leave then everything is sent to the UT and the UT will ask DWP to respond. If they refuse then you get a second shot direct to the UT.
