    Hi Carlos,

    Is someone representing you at tribunal or has the hearing been adjourned to allow you time to seek some advice?

    I'm glad you have some support from the council and they are representing you at tribunal.

    One of the difficulties when challenging PIP decisions is that the whole award is looked at, not just the part you want to challenge. It could take a little longer before you get a definitive answer now, but I hope that the right decision is made in the end.

    There's not much advice I can offer at this stage as it's in the hands of the tribunal now and you have representation, but I wish you every success with the proceedings.

    If you have any further questions about your PIP, I'm happy to try and answer them and you're welcome to get in touch anytime if you need some more information.

    Best wishes
    Debbie
