TOPIC: PIP APPEAL RESULT

PIP APPEAL RESULT 1 year 10 months ago #136260

Thank you Benefits and Work Forum. I was not awarded PIP on the initial assessment so appealed my case as I felt I was entitled to something. After a long process and the help from Benefits and Work I had my my appeal over turned by the Tribunal Panel and was awarded the Standard Rate of the Daily Living Allowance until 2017. Thank you Benefits and Work

That is great news! Thanks for letting us know and for your kind words about B+W :)

I'm afraid I must warn you that DWP are currently initiating reassessments a full 12 months before the claim is due to end, so you will start the process again next year (unless anything changes in the interim) :(

Hi niclou
It's heartening to hear of a success. I'm waiting for a date for my tribunal hearing. I received a big bundle of papers yesterday and it made me feel really despondent and like I'm in way over my head in this fight. It's really lovely to hear from people about their experiences. :)
