TOPIC: PIP appeal success!

PIP appeal success! 1 year 9 months ago #136734

hi guys

i had my tribunal yesterday afternoon and i was told that they agreed with every word i had written in the letter for my mandatory reconsideration and I was awarded 15 points for daily living and 10 for mobility. the judge told me it was one of the best letters he had ever read!

I am so pleased. It shows how flawed the system is. i scored 0 points in both the original decision and reconsideration.

i wrote the letter from the guides you provide about challenging a decision. as weird as it felt awarding myself points, i was so glad I wrote it the way I did.

they basically said they agreed with what i'd written and weren't going to ask me any questions. I was shown back to the waiting area and the judge handed me the notification a few mins later

thank you so much - i doubt i would have been successful without your help!
