notice of appeal form for a tribunal

sarah50sarah50 Member Posts: 119 Pioneering
I am trying to fill in the notice of appeal form sscs1 section 7 question 4 asks if I will agree to less than 14 days notice of a hearing. I don't know if agreeing to this is a good idea will it mean my appeal is rushed or ill-considered. I'm worried that they will ring the day before or even on the day. I don't have any objection if it is a week or a few days. Does anyone have any advice from experience?

    It won't mean that your appeal is rushed they just want to know if they have a cancellation or space they can ask for your case to be heard at short notice 
    Most people now are waiting a year because of back logs

    Thankyou @markboy I'm expecting a long wait just don't want to be waiting a year then they say can you come tomorrow for example or appear difficult by insisting on two weeks notice

    Hi all, just an update on this. As I was waiting to be sent the paperwork and court date got a phone call out of the blue from DWP they looked again agreed with me and reinstated my PIP at the same level as previously for a further 3 years. All I can say is. I have been to hell and back with my health and this could have been resolved at MR.
