:) Hi All just wanted to confirm after the long and stressful process I have had my Appeal Upheld and awarded enhanced rate for both components . A genuine case deserves a fair award and that's what I feel I finally got from the Tribunal by way of points and descriptors . I would add the Macmillan Benefits Officer made my submissions for me after my Mandatory Recondideration was refused written up for me by my carer upon a Medical Assessment!! This was thereafter challenged accurately by The Representative in written submissions and oral evidence given by myself was finally seen for what it is. I felt like giving up so many times because of the stress but would urge anyone to keep with it and state your case in person at Appeal ! Thank you to this site too for information and regular updates in order to feel more positive about the complicated process of appeals

Hi Bb,

As this is not really a "chat forum" where Moderators tend to respond to the vast majority of members queries, you cannot rely on receiving a response from other members, although they may.

Once most members have gone through the processes, the tend not to look at the forum or post again until another Assessment/Re-assessment or problem crops up.

To answer your query, the average wait time presently from the time of submitting an appeal to the actual hearing is 8-12 weeks.
