PIP Appeal acknowledged - info on timescales in London?
Good afternoon all - I am hoping for a little general info on how long I should expect to wait for a Tribunal here in South London. I appealed my PIP decision on 15/9 & received an acknowledgement 22/9 from the Tribunal Service. Would I be correct in thinking I will be waiting at least 3-6 months before a hearing date? My mental health issues mean I am unable to use the telephone to call them to check but could I email them - or would that seem inappropriate?! I ask mainly because I would have to be accompanied to the hearing by my partner, who works full time - getting leave is tough and needs to be arranged weeks in advance so we’re stressing out ....
