Only to go through your papers and make sure that you have a good understanding of the arguments you have made for an award.

Good luck

Great news!

My mums appeal was allowed, and was awarded 36 points and placed back into the support group!

Such a shame that my mum and myself had to go through such a stressful 6 months and clearly highlights the inconsistencies with the DWP assessment process - from 0 to 36 points

thank you to everyone on this forum for their support and guidance

A message to everyone else going through similar struggles - keep fighting!

That's terrific news, congratulations.

It usually takes the DWP 5-8 weeks to process a Tribunal result, it would be worth your while giving them a call next week to confirm that they have received the Decision Notice.
