TOPIC: DWP appealing against the tribunals' decision

Thanks Gordon. Does "inappropriate to fix a term" mean on-going?

Yes, there are only two options; a fixed term award even if that is 10 years or more, or an on-going award.

Hi Derek,
I've only just noticed your comment.
Even if DWP have an outdated computer system, I believe that they should follow up anything like this with a phone call or whatever.
They inflict all manner of unnecessary distress on those of us dependent on state benefits and show absolutely no remorse for the damage they've done.
Even though my claim was finally agreed, and backdated, in September I'm still suffering from the effects of this claim. My mental health continues to be worse than it was before the process began. I know that I can't be alone in this.
I raised my experience with my MP and she said that she hadn't heard from any of her constituents about PIP. I suspect that this is because most of us are so worn down by the process or perhaps feel unable to complain.
I think it would be a good idea if anyone who has suffered at the hands of this cruel, arbitrary system asked their MP to raise it in the House. Perhaps then someone will stop the unnecessary suffering? At present we tend to be unseen and unheard.
Best wishes,
Vicky
