Hi,

Providing answers are still relevant I would copy your answers from your old copy to the new one. Only you know if your condition has changed or not and your answers on the new IB50 should reflect this.

However there is no guarantee that you will/will not be called for a medical even if your answers are identical.

Regards

Pete

Hi

I have all my answers on my computer and just check the questions haven't changed (which they had slightly for me on my last IB-50) print them out and then glue them on to the form. This has always been accepted and it also means that they don't have to read my dreadfull handwriting!!

So as Pete says if your condition hasn't changed and the question is exactly the same then use your answers from last time. They can still call you to a medical if they think it is necessary. Also I believe that they also do a random sample of people called for a medical as well.

Hi,

An appeal panel would probably consider the most contemporary medical evidence as that would 'help' ascertain your claim to benefit as you currently are.

You could introduce the previous medical evidence but it would be upto the panel as to whther or not they accept that it is still relevant (they would only have your word for it as it stands unless you can introduce your own upto date medical evidence in corroboration). In anycase should you need to be going to an appeal tribunal you should really seek face to face advice from a welfare rights adviser, who can go through all the evidence with you to decide what is and isn't helpful to you and present the best case.

Regards

Pete
