    Hi @CMM! Welcome to the community, I'm glad you've joined us. 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into the PIP, DLA, and AA category so that more people can find your post and give you some advice :) 

    How are you feeling about the telephone hearing?

    Thank you for the welcome.As regards the phone hearing i am very sceptical,even if it was a f2f hearing.I noticed on the assessment report sent from Five Ways that it is unsigned and she is only a SRN and no other qualification.I have a back problem,MRI scanned etc,i feel ripped off by Capita.

    Not a PIP hearing but a Capability for Work on Universal Credit hearing.

    Apologies, my mistake @CMM! I have now moved your post to the correct category. 

    I'm sorry to hear you're concerned about it. I know a lot of others are worried about these hearings happening over the phone instead of F2F as well, so you're definitely not alone.

    I hope that our members will be able to give you some advice and support, as this isn't something I have direct experience with.

    HI and welcome,

    You will be asked questions about your conditions and how they affect your ability to do any type of work. What they ask you speciifically will depend on your case and no one can help you with that.

    Just be honest and answer the questions as best as you can. If you don't hear what they said then ask them to repeat it.

    Sometimes it's not possible to make a decision during the hearing, if this happens they will send you a decision letter at a later date.

    Good luck.

    Hi and welcome, I went to WCA tribunal a couple of years ago.

    Have a good read through the bundle and see where you think you meet the criteria and provide a couple of examples for each on why you cant do that task or work. Highlight the parts you disagree with and as they go through the questions tick off the parts covefed

    If you have missed anything you want to get across then they will ask if there is anything you want to add at the end

    I won my case and was awarded LCWRA and they made the decision there and then and I got my extra payment in my next UC payment and the back pay about 6 weeks later
