PIP TRIBUNAL ADVICE FOR EVERYONE!
I just would like to start by saying I hope your all well and safe. I just wanted to give you all a update. A family friends son went to a tribunal ( before covid ) and said they made him feel so relaxed, he waited a good year. and won !!!! he got just over 10K!! about 4 weeks later they paid they money into his account. and he was awarded it for 5 years, enhanced for both parts. the DWP can appeal it ..... but from knowing people that work for the DWP 9/10 they don’t bother. but can’t promise you that will be the case for you. and just to make it clear I’m not saying you will win your case , just sharing his story. from knowing a DWP decision maker ( he retired last year ). he said they go off what the report says they get back. but he also said they prefer it not going to tribunal as if they win we have to pay them backdated pay which could be a lot of money! my advice to anyone is be clear , about your problems. And be honest. obviously with covid going on it’s all telephone assessments.
