TOPIC: PIP Appeal success!

PIP Appeal success! 3 months 1 week ago #181509

I had my PIP Appeal tribunal this morning: not only have they reversed DWP's decision to stop my standard rate for mobility, but they have increased it to enhanced rate, and for an indefinite period! :cheer: :

I used the B&W guides and templates when composing both my 'mandatory reconsideration request' letter and my appeal submission, and I'm sure that helped to make a difference (although I also owe a big thank you to Aparna, the disability adviser at the British Polio Federation, who also gave me some very helpful advice).

The whole process, from DWP's review decision letter to today's tribunal decision, has been a stressful 6 months, but at least now I've got some relief and certainty.

So, for those of you currently struggling through the process: there is light at the end of the tunnel!
