    Mentioning someone in a discussion (do so by putting an @ before the user name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.

    Hi Adi72 yes i remember...I know how you must be feeling. Its such a drag not knowing. Try and stay positive the process once you go in front of tribunal is quick and its based on what difficulties you tell the judges your daughter has not nessairly the dr report mine was pretty basic. Just be clear on the difficulties she has how frequent etc. Stay posotive if you need any advice feel free to msg.

      Thank you so much for replying to me.I feel ao anxious today.Im going to call the tribunal service to see if they have they doctors notes yet.So many other things going on that are making life hard.So even tho the doctors have been negatuve and unhelpful for the most part and may not written good notes that shouldnt matter with regards to her case?That they will not necesarily take on board the doctors notes as literally as they gave been written and they will listen to my daughter?Thanku x

      I just called Tribunal service and they have received the info altho she couldnt tell me how much the doctors have sent.She then said that for my area the wait is 48 weeks and we are on week 20!A few months ago i was told 26 weeks.So slightly stressed now as she said they are a shortage of panel members etc.she said the wait can go up or down but im very worried now to have to wait another 5-6 months.sry to bother u x

  • If you reapply after failing tribunal  and have to appeal again and win do you get back money because of the time you awaited tribunal?

  • Hi guys iv just rang dwp explained its been 4 weeks since my f2f the lady was extremely nice and looked up  my details , she told me a descion was made yesterday and didnt think i had anything to worry about but couldnt tell me fully what the letter said , she then said il put you through to case management and theyll explain the descion, a guy with a very patient attitude said he tell me the basics but all details will be in the letter that was sent this morning,
     He said i got enhanced on both and the assessor recommended 2 yrs but the descion makers changed it to 10yrs ... im sooo happy .. 
    Please let this encourage the fact that descion makers obviously dont always go with the assessors and actually do read our paperwork .. 
    My ordeal is over for now but i will continue on these pages and really would like ppl to know my transfer from dla was quite straightforward, the hard bit was the waiting it made me so anxious xx
    Please send all information you have no matter how old it is and descion makers obviously dont always agree with hp to make there job easy xxx
    Goodluck everyone and il answer any questions
    Ellen xx

    Hello
    I hope you remember me?I had a lovely response from you regards my daughter application and upcoming tribunal for pip.We are still waiting for a date as they are waiting for the doctors records.
    As time goes on go from yes she will get it to now she wont.I also finally had the guts to look at the bundle today as ive been dreading it and the citizens advice guy is coming weds this week.I saw the doctors notes in short that must of gone with the manditory rec and it even said no known disibility conditios!No known affcets on daily basis etc.Like what!We have found the doctors to be very negative and not very understanding.
    I guess my worry is that if the doctors report and now the notes too when they come arent very positive will they hamper her chances of getting the benefit?Because the so called professionals know more than she does?Or will they listen and take on board what my daugter or i(im her appointee)say?
    Im so scared as if she doesnt get it i wont then get carers allowance etc and we will lose the house.Scared!😳Finding it hard to stat strong the more time goes on.
    With kind regards
    Adrienne
