Tribunal looking at universal credit

boristheblondeboristheblonde Posts: 65 Listener
My current uc tribunal has:
1. a poorly filled in health assessment form for uc lcw or lcrwa.
2. A prior tribunals refusal of pip 
3. A current pip award application pack & assessment report. Which was requested by the ftt.

My question is if i win this tribunal for uc lcw or lcwra.
Could i use the current pip award to argue the tribunal loss of pip that the refusal was indeed wrong, or would the uc tribunal be looking at why i had it refused then awarded after the failed ftt & is it within there power to change a decision theyre not actually looking at.

    No.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    ROFL. If that had been my response there would have been a complaint by now. However, very much the only answer. 

    If a previous tribunal refused PIP the options were to apply to UT or for a set aside. If those weren’t done or have been exhausted then the earlier PIP issue is done and dusted. I’d be more concerned about why a UC LCWRA appeal wants info on the PIP claims at all. That screams that insufficient evidence has been provided which is directed to the matter at hand.

    Ok , i did request sos from previous tribunal pip loss to try to goto UT but failed in that respect, im not sure if its exhausted or wether to try to use recent pip assessment as further ecidence.

    Im currently looking to get lcwra on the moving around with the criterea not being able to with reliability, repeatedly safeley being the issue, But am a little unsure how to set this out. 
    This is what im hoping to rely upon.
    If id hazard a guess this is one of the harder criterea to be put in.

    If you failed to get to UT then that is very much the end of your earlier PIP claim as already stated.

    " If those weren’t done or have been exhausted" 

    Only thing that is exhaused is me with all the hoops you have to jump through.

    Set aside how do i get this done.

    You’re well out of time for a set aside and could only have done so if you can show a relevant document was missing. At this point though you’re clutching at straws.
