    Hi really hoping someone can help! I received my decision from my tribunal today to say I have been awarded standard mobility. Since requesting the appeal my health has gotten significantly worse. Can I do a change of circumstances or do I need to start a new claim?
    thankyou. 
    You cannot make a new claim because you now have an award. Wait until you have confirmation from DWP of the award and you can then do a change of circumstances. 

    After you report a change the process is essentially the same as a new claim - complete a new health form, get assessed and then get a decision. This will be a completely new assessment. 

    Take advice about your possible entitlement before reporting a change. It’s only worth report if you are likely to get additional points and they might be enough to change the level of award,
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    It's not helpful to ask the same questions on multiple threads. Members here post freely with the advice they give when they are free to advise.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to all this so bear with me. I had my Appeal on thhe 22/2/23, found out the following Monday I'd been awarded the enhanced rate for both to be backdated to 1/6/21, I can't put into words how happy I am. My advice for everyone is Welfare Rights!! They have been amazing for me, they are so supportive and made the whole process far less stressful!!

    Advice if your not happy with the decision follow process and push all the way to tribunal depending on your circumstances I found face to face the best option even though the hmcts premises was in a pedestrian area and 50mtrs approx from parking area took me a few stops on the way but the effort was with it in the end 

    My advice after appeal win and you find out on the day, would be to contact DWP around 5 working days after appeal and ask the question when your getting payed, I did this and was told 2 weeks ( nearly half way through that 2 weeks now) because I rang in after 5 days the decision was on the system so they asked me the questions about hospital , prison being out of the country and care home, always pays to pester rather than wait for DWP to get in touch, if I don’t hear anything by the end of this week I’ll be back on the phone pestering

    This thread is from 7 months ago and the member you tagged hasn’t been active since that time so you may not get
    a reply.

    Its perfectly normal to be waiting up to 8 weeks after a Tribunal win. I know they asked the questions about hospital etc but this doesn’t mean the award will be put into payment as soon as those questions have been asked.

    I realise it’s stressful but there’s nothing more you can do but wait. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    That's not exactly correct because it will depend on each individuals circumstances. Also if someone is claiming New style ESA there's no premiums or anything payable with this.
