Pip tribunal

Hi,
just been reading that when I send in my written submission for a pip tribuneral I need to send it to the DWP 
I am aware that it isn’t a necessity but I thought everything now had to go via the courts .
I am still doing my research and reading up on things until my decision letter arrives and I can progress, and get advice from others.
Thank you for all you advice you are giving

    You do not need to send anything to DWP when you're at Tribunal stage because HMCTS will send everything to them.

    The HMCTS address you send your SSCS1 form to is at the end of the SSCS1 form. You need do nothing else regarding DWP. 

    Once you have lodged an appeal you would only need to contact DWP if you were putting in a submission to HMCTS and wanted DWP to have as much time as possible to respond. I personally feel no such responsibility to DWP in general.

    I read this on 
    mental Health & money advice website.
    so in your opinion you don’t think it’s a good idea to do one

    You don't need to write the submission when you request the appeal as advised on your other thread. The submission can be written later.

    The information on that site is incorrect. I've messaged them advising them of that.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
