    Hello @berry123 and it's lovely to see you back on the community.

    Just to check, when you say your PIP appeal do you mean you are at the tribunal stage? Or mandatory reconsideration?

    First question. So you have a representative? If not then https://advicelocal.uk is arguably the best place to start albeit a little late in the day.

    If you already have a rep then it’s time to talk to them in depth.

    Second question. Assuming you have appeal papers have you checked everything is there e.g. no documents missing that you sent in and no pages missing. If there are obvious show then get onto HMCTS immediately.

    Thirdly, did your claim pack include one or two real world examples showing how you’d tried and fallen short of being able to perform points scoring activities reliably? If yes, then think of one more per activity and write those down in readiness for the appeal. If no then get writing them now.

    Then why are you asking questions on here? You should be going to your rep with any questions you have, that's why you have the rep.

    I can only echo this. No-one with a rep should be confused about anything and if you are then your rep is your first and only port of call. I doubt you’ll find them on here.

    I'm sorry for your loss @berry123. I'm sure that must have been very difficult to cope with. Have you been able to get all of the support you need to help you through the grieving process? 

    I'm glad to hear that you have a representative, and that they're sorting things out with you. Do you feel as though you can approach them to ask questions about the process if needed? They'll know the most about your individual case, and should best placed to talk things through with you.

    That being said, I understand that you'd want to ask the question on the community to hear other people's words of support, and advice based on their own experiences. 

    Anyone is free to ask questions on the community of this nature. I can only imagine that going to tribunal can be confusing and worrying at times, and we want the community to be a place where people feel they can share these worries, and become clearer on what their next steps should be.
