TOPIC: Two medicals ?

Two medicals ? 7 years 7 months ago #79336

If you have a medical and fail then submit a appeal do the DWP ever call for you for a second medical in any circumstances ?

Also I sent my appeal off and it got signed for my my office who deals with my claim on the 5th january, how long should I wait before I contact them to see if they have acknoledge my appeal ?

thanks

Hi P,

See Gordon's advice on the thread below regarding your first question :

www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/forum?func=vie...id=10&id=79132#79137

The DWP are supposed to acknowledge your appeal submission within about 10 days, so you may wish to contact them re : this.

However, as it seems to have been signed for by the Benefits Office, at least you are sure that it has been delivered.

Letters, etc, have been known to "get lost" within the Benefits Office though.

What the DWP are supposed to and what they actually do are often far apart.

The first thing to do is contact your local DWP office to find out what is going on.

When you appealed, did you make the request over the phone, write a letter, or complete a GL24?
