I have decided to appeal and go to Tribunal with my claim. I am just completing the SSCS1A form which I have downloaded.

I am currently at the Grounds for Appeal section and wondered how indepth I should go with regard to my reasons for appealing. Not sure what I should say at this section. Should it be along the lines of correcting the Assessor's observations/descriptors. I can't find within the appeal notes anywhere exactly what I should be saying at this section so I don't drop myself in it

The PIP MR & Appeal guide explains how to complete the form, you do not need to provide detailed reasons at this stage of the process.

I am also at Section 6 of the form where it asks if I want to attend the hearing or have it is done by the panel. I WANT to attend but unfortunately I can't due to agoraphobia which I have noted at Section 7 of the form

You can request a paper hearing where you do not attend but be aware that the statistics for these suggest that the success rate is a lot lower than an Oral hearing that you do go to. As an alternative you can ask for the Tribunal to be held via a video link or just over the phone.
