    At the risk of going all Disney on you perhaps take the approach that if you can’t say something positive don’t say anything at all. There’s a time and place for people to hear negative stuff - goodness knows forums are full of it - but Peru’s is not when people need encouraging that, in most cases, a challenge will be worth it and will succeed with minimal risk to anything they already have. Wrong message at the wrong moment.
    Hope for the best but prepare for the worst is how I see it.

    Hi, just to update everyone that’s given me advice for my pip tribunal over the year that I had it today and I won! So relieved more than anything, thanks again everyone so much scoring 0 at the assessment to getting higher daily living and standard mobility is absolutely amazing.

    what happens now as the systems were down ie backdating and do I have to contact dwp? they couldn’t tell me anything other than I won

    Congrats!  Must be such a relief. You should start receiving regular payments and arrears lump sum in 5-8 weeks.

    Perseverance paid off, well done. My daughter waited for 2 weeks after the decision and then contacted DWP for an update from their end. They informed her that they had received the decision and was putting it into practice. They gave her some dates of when she could expect her payment day for her PIP award and when she could expect her back payment. They were very helpful after the tribunal, but not so before.

    To HMCTS and not DWP. The address is different for everyone, depending on where you live.

    @poppy123456 thank you, I will have to google this because I have no idea. I think in Birmingham we have a lot of courts.

    If you're not sure then the best thing to do is ring and ask where you send it to. You'll need to reference number for this.
