Were do I post about pip ? And appeals? New here hi all 

I'm going through a bad time with pip and appeal was removed off dla high high.. to nothing in jan this year .. 

Now I had an appeal date 6th oct but was ajourned due to not enough medical evidence..

New appeal date set this fri 20th nov 
But my further info was sent to capita for review and decision maker has it on his desk now in pip .. 

I was 1st awarded with 3 points in daily living 0 for mobility 

New capita report has awarded 11 points daily living part 
0 for Mobility 

My question is with that on the DM desk and an email to say it's been changed will he laspe the appeal and go with capitas report ??? 

Or in 4 days time will I still be at the appeal hearing :(((

Thanks everyone and hi again...irish

    HI and welcome,

    May i ask if you reapplied again while waiting for your Tribunal? Sorry but it's not quite clear exactly what you mean by "review"

    Also what email do you mean? where was it from?

    If you can answer that then i'm sure someone will be able to help you further.

    This mite help on the 1st appeal date it was ajourned.. as no evidence.  My representative send them new evidence to back my case up .. 

    It went to pip and they sent it for capita doctors to review it to see if they would change any off the points awarded...

    It was changed from 3 points to 11 points 

    But now I've 4 days to my new appeal date and I contacted pip today and the fella on the phone . 
    Stated that they have the report there and that my appeal is 4 days away he emailed the decision maker that theres been change and to review it 

    Is it possible to change the decision before Friday?

    To be honest i've not heard of anyone sending new evidence to DWP when waiting for a Tribunal hearing, usually evidence is sent to HMCTS. May i also ask what you mean by "an email saying it's been changed" was this from HMCTS?

    Sorry for the questions but advice can't be given without more details.

    I have no idea whether your appeal hearing will be canceled. DWP would need to contact you with the award offer first and if you accept this they will contact HMCTS to cancel the appeal.

    The question is, would you be happy with Standard daily living? If this was the offer you can take this and continue with the Tribunal but you would need to apply again to HMCTS and your time would start from the beginning again.

    I also see that you said "would i be at the appeal hearing" most hearings are done by telephone and only the most extreme cases are heard face to face.

    If you have a rep you should really be speaking to them about this because they will know everything about your case.

    My appeal was ajourned on 6th oct ... they sayed they want a fair trial so could my representative send further evidence in ...
    It was sent in by herself to the appeal service and pip themselves..

    Pip then sent that further evidence to capita and asked capita does this Affect any of the current descriptors? ....capita sent a report back changing there points from 3 to 11 

    The fella who I rang today in pip stating he would email the DM to let them no capita revised there 1st decision . 
    He emailed due to only 4 days till my new appeal date

    We seem to be cross posting with each other, please see my previous comment. I note that you also have a representative and you really should be speaking to them regarding this because they will know everything about your case. My advice is to contact your rep tomnorrow and they will advise you based on your case.
