I thought having a face to face would be good so I could get my point across etc.
Would like to hear from people who have had decision made without the tribunal hearing for pip.
Can the dwp have more power than the tribunal courts then? I assumed the courts made the decision not dwp who was the original people who denied me my pip award and went with the assessor's lies instead.
If the offer you an award then it just means that DWP have realised that an award should have been given in the first place.
Hi all I have been waiting 47 weeks for a tribunal date and I am very worried any advice would be appreciated
If you are still waiting then I suggest you ring them and they may give you an idea as to the time scale for your daughter.
Hi I was waiting 6 months then got a offer from the dwp, I accepted which I regret as I was offered the standard rate and I know i should of got the enchached rate. Anyways so I'm not sure had they not got in touch how much longer I would of had to wait.
I'm so sorry to hear you are struggling but please hang in there. I have this feeling dwp will ring you soon to offer you an award, they will do anything to stop you going to tribunal if that's what you're waiting to hear from I take it.
Does anyone know how long before you hear from the pip appeal tribunal. I sent my application and submissions in Feb 2018.
I'm hearing that it's very rare dwp offer an award before tribunal but I've had a few people it's happened to including myself. Many cases are successful at the tribunal which looks bad on the dwp so that's why they try their best to stop you going and offer you the award. You can however refuse the offer and proceed with the tribunal which I wish I did.
DWP don't ring from a withheld number. they never have when they've rang me.
I'm glad you got your date, just prepare yourself and fight your corner. I wouldn't be surprised if in meantime dwp ring you thou. Keep us posted please.
Good for you, I only wish I was patient enough to go all the way, but was so drained I just accepted.
Well today's the day I received my tribunal date in post date is for February....relieved is an understatement will keep youse posted
She also went on to inform me if was not obliged to accept however if I proceed with the tribunal and it did not go my way I could loose the standard rate I was offered, so could I afford risking that. It was a lengthy telephone call and I did accept out of fear really.
Hi all I have my tribunal next month any advice would be appreciated
