TOPIC: Tribunal and mental health

Tribunal and mental health 1 month 3 days ago #197338

Had my Tribunal at Luton Magistrates court yesterday at 3pm. Was very pleased with the help of the forum moderators and the guides that I had to hand I went from 9 points caring to 13 so now get enhanced care instead of daily living. Also went from no mobility to low mobility, awarded for 5 yrs. I am so pleased.
Was shocked that all that had to question was original decision and the Atos report, so i had gone over kill with with every decision made mandatory and even the dwp decision to the tribunal to not consider my appeal. Over all the panel were not delving too much into my daily routine etc.They took each illness and ask me about that, ie epilepsy BPD and about my lower limb foot fusion. But my thanks is to this great site, which I will always stay a member of, as we will never know how the government will change things in the future. Good luck to everyone in the future, and don't be afraid to use your MP

Very pleased for you, well done.

It usually takes the DWP 5-8 weeks to process a Tribunal result. I would give them a call next week to confirm that they have received the Decision Notice.

Sorry to jump back in again, but have spoke to DWP this morning, they have said they have 28 days to appeal the tribunals decision. That if they do not appeal against me, I will receive a letter detailing payments and back payments. Is this allowed by them really!!! I say that because its me receiving letters through the post because of late payments etc, and it sounds to me like it will not be till late October before I receive any of my rightful money

I did warn you that it normally takes 5-8 weeks to process a Tribunal Decision.
