Don't lose out just because the system isn't fair.

Are you being transferred from Disability Living Allowance (DLA) to Personal Independence Payment (PIP)? Or from ESA to Universal Credit? Are you making a fresh claim or renewal claim? Or pursuing a mandatory reconsideration or appeal for ESA, PIP or UC?

Are you worried that the forms are complex and unclear, the medicals may be rushed and inaccurate and the decisions unfair? If so, use our expert, step-by-step guides and give yourself the best possible chance of getting your legal entitlement.

We’ll warn you of pitfalls, offer you specialist tips and tactics and guide you through every part of this bewildering process.
