TOPIC: MR Failure - Onto Appeal, Question

MR Failure - Onto Appeal, Question 4 weeks 3 hours ago #236251

Thank so you much!

So as I understand it the process is as follows...

I sent the appeal form, which is then forwarded to the DWP for response.

I get a copy of their response to the tribunal and a chance to gather/send evidence to challenge what they say

Then the tribunal.

Am I correct?

Hi Alex

Run through the PIP appeals guide, "Guide to PIP Appeals" because it gives details of every stage of the process and it varies slightly from an oral or written hearing.

MR Failure - Onto Appeal, Question 2 weeks 6 days ago #236624

Thank you so much for that, I've had the appeal submitted and accepted. It's now down to the DWP to do their submission.

I have another question though, today my friends medication has changed, the dosage has been increased. Would this count as further proof that his condition is as severe as we say, or would they look differently at this because it happened after the DWP rejection?

Should I make the DWP aware of this increase? I know they can, but I bet rarely do, change their minds before the hearing date...

We are trying to argue that this is an ongoing condition that is as bad today as it was when we first claimed in 2016.

Hi Alex

They are likely to ignore it - because the judgment is being made on the time he applied and the MR.
