TOPIC: DLA to PIP Appeal Success

DLA to PIP Appeal Success 1 month 4 weeks ago #188135

I have just appeared before a tribunal after being reassessed at 0pts for both mobility & carers allowance for my transfer to PIP from DLA 6 months ago.

The courts decision was enhanced rate mobility & standard rate care, this by the way was what I was on for DLA, the award is for 3 years - fantastic news! :)

The negative, I was informed by the clerk of the court that the DWP can now review/reassess your award within one year of it ending (previously this was 3 months) so in theory they have shortened any award that you get by a year (in my case to 2 years) and you can expect to go through the whole process again if they're still ignoring your facts/evidence!

I would like to say to anyone who is reassessed and then awarded 0 points, make sure you appeal, the court appearance is not as intimidating as you think it will be, they put you at ease, they are not the DWP/ATOS, they actually look at the evidence, and unlike the DWP base their decision on the facts.

I would like to thank Benefits & Work for your informative guides and to the Forum Admins who give amazing advice during the stressful times, it is much appreciated. :)

Hi there I have my hearing on 7th June - appealing against standard rate 10 points and length of award. How long did the hearing last ? Did they ask all the questions ?

Most appeals are 45-60 minutes. The panel will ask you questions but you will be given a chance to raise any issues that you feel have not been addressed at the end of the hearing.
