    Hello @tulisapavloff1 - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. Your tribunal hearing will just be a panel of a Judge, a doctor, & someone with an understanding of disabilities. On a forum such as this we cannot know your full circumstances, but, as you have the help of welfare rights, that is in your favour, as they will have an understanding of your health problems and how they affect you.. Tribunals have a much higher success rate than a Mandatory Reconsideration, & phone tribunals seem to be favourable at the moment. I hope it all goes well and you get the right award. :)

    Universal Credit and PIP are completely separate benefits with different criteria, so I don't think that will help you unfortunately. The best evidence is your own. Try & give a couple of real life detailed examples as to how you were at the time of your assessment. For example, for each activity/descriptor that applies, describe what happened when you attempted or did an activity. Did anyone see the problems you had, why did it happen, what exactly happened, & how did it leave you feeling afterwards?
    It's also important to say if you can't do an activity safely, if you can't do it to an acceptable standard, or repeat it as often as you would like, or if it takes you more than twice as long as someone who hasn't got your health conditions & or disability.
    If you haven't seen a list of the descriptors you can find them here: https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/asset-library/Personal-Independence-Payment-Descriptors-and-Scores-April-2021.pdf    Please also look at the notes at the end too.

    Hi there 

    Have you had your tribunal now then ? Or is this what you got awarded before 

    If you have had the tribunal and that is the decision then unfortunately you have not been successful and no award has been granted

    While I sympathise with you it isn't about how many problems you have 

    It's about how they affect your ability to do the task against the descriptors 

    People may have numerous health problems but still be able to complete all the tasks 

    Good luck for your tribunal and as @mikehughescq says you have a advisor to help you so any concerns should be addressed by them 

    When is the tribunal

    Probably not a good idea to look at what benefits other people have and if they should have them or not because we don't know everyone's situation behind closed doors? Same as they don't know yours??
     But anyway if they are saying you should get or are only getting 6 points then your best bet is to look at the link @chiarieds posted above? That will show you exactly what gives you what points? So if you can find places where you believe you need the extra points to give you an award then that's what you need to focus on? 
    But also like Mike said Above probably be most helpful speaking to the people already helping you with your case so you don't become more confused and anxious? Because other people can only base things on what happened to them and they will be in different situation so it may not help you?  ??

    Good luck for tomorrow @tulisapavloff1. I’m a bit confused though, the pip seems to be for you, yet you keep referring to the fact that your Dad has been without money for a year.

    Hi @tulisapavloff1 sorry you feel it went badly today!
     Did you show your dad the thing Mike posted above? And have you guys seen the descriptors list? I know how frustrating it is but they honestly only need to know about certain things and it doesn't matter how upset we get and how wrong or right it is they have a list they stick to and if you don't struggle with those things they don't give you points? If i hadnt of seen the descriptors i would still be sat defeated like you are right now ☹️ 
     I thought you had someone helping you guys with all this? What have welfare rights said to you or your dad? Are they advising you that you only qualify for 6 points? Or have they said you can get more points in other areas?
     And universal credit saying you are unfit for work is really not anything to do with PIP they look at different things altogether? Plenty of people are unfit for work but don't qualify for pip?
     I just want you to get the right help and understand how it works or your dad to understand what is going on so you are able to either push further with this (if it doesn't go through) or accept it isnt likely to happen? Because you are making yourself poorly by going through all this for nothing? ☹️
