Hi everyone, put in for M.R got turned down, absolutely gutted my daughter does more or less everything for me before and after she goes to work. Can see why people don't bother even trying in the beginning when you are genuine but made to feel like a fraud

    Hi @marj07 sorry to hear your news.

    As janer said above you still have the option to take your application to tribunal. 

    It might be a good idea to contact your local Citizens Advice and discuss your situation with them as they will be in a position to advise you on the next steps to take and should be able to put you in contact with the right professionals who would be able to assist you with this

    Hi so sorry you didn’t get an award.
    Please don’t give up I know how you’ll be feeling, Iv had to goto appeal twice and got an award. Try to get some advice from Cab or Welfare rights. Good luck

    Don't give up @marj07 you've come this far. Take a few days to have a break from the situation before making a final decision because sometimes you view things differently on a different day.

    Keep safe.

    I know that feeling..... completely overwhelmed and stressed....... but I found that putting all the paperwork out of sight for a few days helps. Like others have said, get in touch with Welfare Rights person or the CAB. DON’T give up, please ??????

    @marj07 I really hope after you’ve given yourself a break for a few days, you get some advice and get your appeal put in, 4 years ago I waited 18 months for an appeal .
    The last time my appeal was submitted the end of July 2020 my appeal was heard by telephone November 2020.
    They are obviously getting through them so much quicker by phone. It’s definitely something to think about.
    Take care and stay safe ?

    @marj07 you have already been given the best advice which is to try and get help from CAB although I would add to that and suggest you try welfare rights first as CAB can be a bit hit and miss whereas WR specialise in benefits advice.
    Be extra nice to new members.
