Supreme court ruling 3 months 1 day ago #265037

Thanks, I have already read the guidance,but it doesn't discuss my query which is that if I proactively contact dwp to ask them to review my points awarded for 'engaging with others' , would that jeopardise my current award of mobility. Also, if they dont review the engaging with others points in my favour am I entitled to appeal it.

Hi Lady P

We have heard from members on the forum who asked DWP about reviewing 'engaging with others' only to be sent a review form for their current claim.

I would advise you to seek help from a local Welfare Rights Organisation, I believe that if you try to appeal a decision that is over 13 months old then you will be out of time.

Have members received a review form for the whole claim even after they have sent the sample letter published by yourselves? You say after 13 months an appeal may be out of time but it is not an appeal. Benefits and work is advising people to proactively contact dwp with a sample letter regarding engaging with other people.

Hi Lady P

You are getting things mixed up

I am not aware of any members who " received a review form for the whole claim even after they have sent the sample letter published by yourselves" I was talking about members who contacted DWP themselves after hearing of the LEAP review on social media and other formats.

In regards to "You say after 13 months an appeal may be out of time but it is not an appeal." I was answering your question "if they dont review the engaging with others points in my favour am I entitled to appeal it".
