TOPIC: Lost appeal

Lost appeal 2 weeks 14 hours ago #174874

I was previously in the ESA support group but after being assessed in June this year was put in the WRAG. Tribunal today didn't go in my favour. What would you advise I do?

Your options are very limited.

You can see whether an Error of Law was made in the making of the Tribunal's Decision, but even if there is the most likely result would be a new Tribunal with no guarantee of an SG award, this could take the best part of a year to resolve. See

What is an Error of Law?

Tribunals – Requesting a Statement of Reasons

If you can provide medical evidence to support a deterioration in your conditions such that you would now meet the SG criteria then you can ask to be reassessed. But be aware this is a full reassessment of your claim, not just the change, so a new ESA50 and almost certainly a face to face assessment and again they may still decide that you do not meet the SG criteria, although it will create a new opportunity for an MR and appeal.
