TOPIC: Awarded pip after tribunal

Awarded pip after tribunal 1 year 3 months ago #150473

I have just been awarded pip after a tribunal. I had a home visit assessment and was taken off my previously awarded dla
The assessor completely misrepresented everything I told her and I was declined for a pip award.
I decided to appeal and did so on paper as I find it extremely stressful to go out. After 5 months and lots of correspondence my letter arrived today and my appeal was upheld.
Thanks to this site for all the useful information
