    Hi @ruhi welcome to the community :) 

    Have you tried giving them a call for an update?

    I'm sorry to have tell you their are many that have been waiting in acces of a year or more, my advice would be is give the tribunal a call to see if they can give you any idea when it likely will be heard. Good luck.
    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories. 

    You can see the video here.

    So sorry but it’s a waiting game, and worst to come when they the DWP start  using the fast track system before allowing a oral tribunal hearing. Many will fail or give up unable to cope using the tick box system.
