DISGUSTING

HeyokaHeyoka Posts: 6Member Listener
I went with my Husband to an Appeal Court for PIP, he was on the middle rate of DLA until PIP assessment.  We were not given time to get our papers out at the Trial I was told to be quiet twice or I would have to leave...... (All I was doing ws helping a little with my husband.)  At the end they started trying to slag me off about my claim as my Husband is my Carer  But not anymore we have NO Care now at all.  PLEASE HELP WHAT CAN WE DO.

    Hello and welcome


    As you have no award in payment you should submit a new claim straight away

    DLA and PIP use different criteria for awards, PIP is more about functionality then condition
    It is important to understand the points system, descriptors and the criteria for an award. A good starting place is the B&W self test

    Please come back and look at the info on this site and ask any questions

    Thank that is helpful so we just apply for PIP again right from the start like a New Application??

    Yes. There are only two options following a tribunal
    Either, find an error in law with which to appeal to the UTT, which is very rare
    Or start a new claim using the knowledge gained

    Well after all messing about for nearly 6 months ...........Has to Apply for Attendance as he is over 65 years old.  It appears that DWP/PIP make you go through all the process of claiming PIP and Tribunals etc before you can claim Attendance allowance??????????????????????????????????

    It is possible to find an error in law but it can take some time. If you request the paperwork they are supposed to provide within set time limits but these are often ignored. No one, it seems, can force a judge to do what they are supposed to do. At the time I requested them it was supposed to be 6 weeks but it took 6 months. I was treated similarly to you except that in my case I was accused of trying to get a free car. It turned out that the lady judge was extremely biased and made massive errors in judgement but it took 9 months and another tribunal to prove it.

    Hello Topkitten, We had a lady Judge and she spent the whole time telling me off and then being the same with my Husband.  We were not allowed to get the papers out to follow things, I did!! which appeared to upset her again.  I think that unless the Judge has a Disability or totally understands it they should not take PIP Tribunals.
