PIP Tribunal - Scotland
I’ll try and be as brief as possible as it’s a long story!
Applied for PIP a year ago, now at the tribunal stage which is in a couple of weeks time.
First paper based hearing was adjourned as my case was apparently “too complex” for them to make a decision. Said I should seek advice from CAB or welfare rights, which I then did.
Had an appointment with a welfare rights advisor last week who passed my case to a welfare rights officer who will be taking on my case and representing me at the next tribunal.
I’m meeting the welfare rights officer for a chat about my case this week.
Would appreciate any advice at all about the impending hearing as I am utterly terrified and anxious.
Also, is it true that the assessors tend to fail those will likely win at appeal stage?
