TOPIC: Successful paper based PIP appeal

Successful paper based PIP appeal 8 months 1 week ago #160803

Hello

I received an email from Hmcts Liverpool to notify me that my appeal has been allowed and decision notice in post. It does not say what the decision is, but I appealed on basis of enhanced mobility as I was awarded 6 points previously. I am happy with whatever they have upheld as it has taken 19 months and exactly 1 year from mandatory reconsideration and is the principle really.

I would like to THANK the mods of this site for the invaluable documents which helped me to succeed.

I will update again when I receive the decision notice.

A restrained well done!

The Decision Notice usually takes 3-4 days, once you have it would be worth your contacting the DWP to make sure that they have received their copy. Tribunal results usually take 5-8 weeks to be processed.

Hello there

I was awarded standard rate daily living. I do not qualify for mobility as I live abroad. I am happy with the outcome which has been backdated to last June and awarded for 5 years.

It was all thanks to this site and the excellent guides and advice. It was a long and frustrating process but worth it. I would say to anybody who thinks that they have been assessed incorrectly to pursue a better outcome and not give up as perseverance if you are genuine pays off. We are all casualties of poor practice and targets within the DWP, but external observers like the courts will see through that, so go for it.
