    You should definitely appeal the decision and then go to tribunal. 

    If if you have all the relevant informatiom it could be worth a try, 65% of tribunals run in favor of you. 

    All the best

    HI,

    Mandatory reconsideration is the first step and you need to request this within 1 month of the date of the decision. If that fails and most do then it's Tribunal.

    There's no other disability benefit he can claim.

    You have up to 13 months to appeal to the tribunal.
    If you have no award in payment then there is no waiting time to reapply, however unless you have new evidence the result is likely to be the same
