TOPIC: Brothers PIP review

Brothers PIP review 2 weeks 12 hours ago #220720

Hello again.

I don't know whether you can help or not Gordon. I've had a response from ATOS/IAS admitting faults in the report and offering a minimal payment but they haven't changed the decision.

I asked for a SAR from them in early September. They didn't respond and when i queried it a month later they said they needed permission to pass the request to DWP, hadn't i received the request letter?

Sent another request to include DWP who received it early October. Spoke to them today and it's been logged but no action has been taken on the request. They sent it through today but there is a delay and it's likely to take a minimum of a further 30 days.

Any thoughts on my next step?

Thanks. :)

IAS are out of the loop, they don't make a Decision only a recommendation, so unless the DWP revise the Decision, which is unlikely to happen, you have to continue with the appeal.

SARs are required to be completed within 40 calendar days if the DWP fail to comply then you can make a complaint to the Information Commissioners Office.
