    If you've already been through the MR process then now you need to request the Tribunal. When you request this you just need to give a brief reason why you disagree with the decision. Everything else can be sent at a later date. https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal
    Not sure what your local MP can do here because they will have very limit benefits knowledge. You should get some expert advice from an agency near you by using the link provided above.


    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.

    Let us know how things go with your local MP @steve60 and if you would like the decision looked at independently, then you can appeal to Tribunal. 

    Turn2Us has an overview of a Tribunal and how to challenge the DWP's decision after the MR stage. If you would like any help or have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to ask, and we'll do what we can to support you.
