TOPIC: pip appeal this friday

pip appeal this friday 6 months 1 week ago #226004

Hi. i was wondering if anyone could give me an idea what sort of questions they will ask so i can prepare. i have adhd/asd so im wondering will the questions be more related to mental health? also will i get a chance to explain how my adhd/asd affects me? i have my mum coming with me and a paralegal who will be giving them a wriiten submisson. Not sure what to expect and feeling very nervous.

thanks for all your help.

There are sections in the PIP Claim guide that cover the assessment and the questions you are likely to be asked.

I'm sorry, I did not read your post properly :blush:

There will be three members of the panel, a Judge or solicitor, a doctor and a layperson with experience of disability issues.

The questions will mostly come from the doctor.

They will be asking about how and why you meet the criteria for an award of PIP so make sure you understand the Descriptors that you are hoping to meet. I'm afraid there is no way to pre-empt what those questions might be, they will be specific to your claim.

The following video is for an ESA appeal but it will give you a general idea of the proceedings

Best of luck.
