    Hi there 

    What is chda ? 

    A work capability assessment us completely separate from pip they are seperate benefits with different criteria 

    So no they cannot overwrite the decision for your PIP or help at tribunal 

    Pip is about your daily living and mobility the wca is about your ability to undertake any type of work
