I took pip to the commissioners office in Belfast and won my case now I have to go back to appeal to tell the panel about my mental health problems that I struggle with every day of the week and my post tramatic stress disorder. MY case has been set aside due to covit19 I have been told by the welfare supplementary benefits that it could be a year before I get a hearing I have a brilliant solicitor that deals with the law centre Belfast at the moment I am waiting to speak to the panel when I get word to go I will let u know more many thanks
