    Hi @Elle1998 my sisters brother was suppose to go tribunal ........ had all the paperwork in the world , a few weeks before he was suppose to go to tribunal they called him up and gave him enhanced rate for both components. obviously I’m going saying DWP will call every person up and award them it before they go court. but it does happen! he’s been paid now 8.4K and has been awarded it for 5 years!!!! As long it you go off the descriptors and fit in them you should be fine. a neighbour worked as a decision maker down my road and he said we are not medically trained, also he said 9/10 DWP don’t bother going to the tribunal. hope that helps.

    Hi Charlotte441
    Thank you for your reply 
    I'm pleased to hear your relation got his full award before tribunial hearing 
    I'm just waiting for my date 
    Your story has made me feel bit more positive.

    DWP make offers in an increasing but small number of cases. The offer will almost always be less than you are likely to get at the hearing both in terms of the rate but especially the length. However, DWP repeatedly fail to mention that you can accept the offer; get the money into payment and then pursue an appeal on the remainder anyway.

    Worth mentioning at the outset of your hearing.
