TOPIC: Telephone hearing success?

Telephone hearing success? 1 month 1 week ago #172248

Thank you so much for putting my mind at ease. But the people who are sent ESA50 forms during their PIP appeals, or asked to be reassessed, does this happen much?
Thanks again guys xx

We've only seen it happen recently and only to a half dozen or so members, it could simply be coincidence, especially as several of them have the received the forms within weeks of each other and before a Decision has been made on either claim.
