TOPIC: Paper tribunal PIP awarded

Paper tribunal PIP awarded 1 year 9 months ago #138038

My son was involved in a serious traumatic road traffic collision he developed CFS at 20years old and still works with reasonable adjustments. Applied for PIP in January 2014 refused. Went to mandatory consideration in January 2015 awarded extra 4 points but was still refused. Applied for a paper tribunal and won standard care in June 2015. 17 months from start to finish but it was worth it. Many thanks to benefits and works. For all applicants with CFS persevere.

I also helped a friend with fibromyalgia complete her forms she was refused PIP went to reconsideration was awarded full mobility and standard care.

Congratulations on the Tribunal Decision, we don't hear the results of many Paper hearings so it is good of you to have posted.

It typically takes 6-8 weeks for the DWP to deal with the Tribunal result.
