TOPIC: about appealing

about appealing 7 years 8 months ago #66884

  • paula
Have noticed on the forum that when the welfare reform bill gets rushed through, we then have to ask for the decision to be relooked at before we can appeal. As we only have a month to appeal is that then it or do we get a gl24 form and sort it out striaght away anyway, any advice gratefully received :)

Hi Paula

At present, when you ask for a reconsideration and the DWP send you a letter telling you that they refuse to change their decision, you have one month from the date of this letter to appeal.

The only thing that's likely to change when the Welfare Reform Bill gets passed is that you will no longer be able to appeal straight away. You will have to apply for a reconsideration first, but you will have an additional month to appeal if the reconsideration does not change the decision.

Hope this helps
