Admin error resulted in 2 PIP hearings, will I be asked the same questions?
I recently had a hearing for PIP but due to an administrative error the hearing was titled as universal credit, so I've had to have a new one booked for a PIP hearing. I suffer with anxiety, depression and EDS, but I wasn't asked questions about my joint hypermobility and I'm worried I won't have the chance to talk about it as it is the main reason for my PIP appeal. I wasn't able to shed enough light onto EDS but I scored points on UC/ESA descriptors that are identical to PIP with my answer about anxiety at the initial hearing, and had those points confirmed on my appeal decision letter. Will I also be able to use this as proof for my next tribunal hearing? I've been found unfit for work too. I suffer with panic attacks, joint stiffness, pain and dislocation regularly but I didn't get the chance to talk about this at my hearing. I was also found to be eligible for ESA.
