TOPIC:

won pip tribunal for my brother 3 months 2 weeks ago #255005

hi
gordon was so helpful a few months ago when i asked for some direction about my brothers tribunal for pip. he was on dla for life after a traumatic brain injury at 16, early onset alzheimers at age 45(hes 52 now)plus several brain infarcts.
he had 0 points and no payments since sept 2019 (shortly after he lost his 42 yr old wife to breast cancer)but my husband and i gathered evidence and helped with case.t oday we got the letter to say a paper tribunal had taken place(90 pages) and they ruled in his favour, standard care and mobility given.he is £30 a month better off plus about £5800 back pay .i realise that dwp have 28 days but this is such a relief.
iv finally posted my own pip review after taking weeks to sort it so fingers crossed. iv used this site plus kind advice from the forum admin
thank you so much for your help
and thank you from my brother
i hope this gives people hope
kind wishes

Hi libran1962

That really is terrific news, congratulations and well done. Pleased that you found Gordon helpful.

You can concentrate on your own, don't forget to ask for a copy of the assessors report (PA4) even if you are successful.

dear gary
thank you so very much
so reassuring to have this site.
on looking through the tribunal form i note that its only been awarded until april next year(dla for life and progressive incurable alzheimers) but so thankful to have been successful
reading previous posts does winning at tribunal mean the money stops being paid on that end date and also that dwp dont issue any reminder/review form?
please is there any advice on when/how to proceed next year?i can diary to help him again
thank you again
kindest regards

Hi libran1962

We are receiving mixed messages on the forum, I would advise you to contact DWP 6 months prior to his renewal and ask if they will be send your brother a renewal form.

Your brother may be sent an extension letter, in which case that will be the date to go by, it is a bit hit and miss.

Crazy that it's only awarded until next year given his condition but well done, congratulations and good luck with your own review!
