Pip appeal ongoing now been took off pip 3 months 4 days ago #195560

Hi,

It's me again sorry. I've had some good news this morning and received my appeal decision, they have said I should be awarded for enhanced on both from 19/11/2015 this 03/02/2018. What does this mean now that they have stopped my claim? Does this mean I don't have to appeal the decision from the second assessment I had or does it not make a difference and I will have to appeal anyway?

Thanks in advance for any help, I wouldn't of got through this appeal if it weren't for this website, I've learned so much about my entitlements and what my rights are which makes me more determined to get better so I can help others who need it like me

You don't need to repeat your posts, all posts are moderated and won't appear in the forum until they are approved by a Moderator :)

So congratulations on winning the first appeal. I'm afraid you still need to pursue the second one, the second Decision on your claim supersedes the Tribunal Decision, so even though the award from the first appeal is supposed to run until 02/18, the second Decision means that it will in actuality only run until the date of that second Decision.

You can use the increased award from the appeal you have just won as evidence for the second one.

Hi Gordon,

Thanks for the reply. I didn't know about the comments sorry.

I rang pip earlier to query before I seen your response. The man I spoke to was saying the case manager who will be sorting that appeal out will look over my claim and reconsideration again and decide if they think the claim should continue until February 2018. I thought that sounded too good to be true to be honest, they're always contradicting themselves every time I ring.

I just hope this second appeal doesn't take as long as the first I just don't think I have it in me to carry on with appeals for much longer.

The DWP can still make an award and this might be prompted by the new Tribunal Decision but you need to continue with the second appeal until they do, also, they do not have to offer you the same award so you may need to decide what to do.

Thanks again Gordon for clearing things up for me. Honestly don't know where I would be without you all.
