TOPIC: Failed DLA to PIP migration update

Failed DLA to PIP migration update 9 months 6 days ago #161324

Good afternoon all

Just in case anyone was following 'my journey' I am pleased to say after my appeal tribunal which I found nerve wracking, I was awarded PIP standard care.

To anyone else who is nervous about a tribunal, all I can say is the tribunal panel
did not once, question the validity of my disabilities, their probing questions were about accurately assessing which PIP descriptor I met.

Thank you for the help from this site.

My migration timeline was as follows:

Sept 15 PIP 'invitation"

Dec 15 PIP refusal

Jan 16 MR submitted

Mar 16 MR failed

Mar 16 Appeal submitted

Jun 16 Appeal tribunal
