Hello today was my pip tribunal 27/02/17 something I never want to go through ever again. I was awarded standard rate care but after a renewal was sent they decided I was not due to carry on receiving and scored 0 points. Even thou my health has got alot worse i suffer with depression and anxiety and also been diagnoised copd after they had asked all ?? They told me that I would receive my decision throu th post. Is his th normal procedure as I have heard that if u re awrded or win u are told there and then. confused how this works.

Any help or information I would be grateful

    Please don't read anything into this.  It depends how busy they are, if they're running late etc.  Having the decision through the post doesn't mean it's good or bad, it could be either.  I've heard of people being told at the time, both good and bad outcomes.  Similarly with people who are sent the decision in the post.  I hope you hear quickly and get the response you are hoping for.

    Hello Adelle,

    I have never had to go to Tribunal, but I've just looked at Citizens Advice  and this is what it said -

    you'll be asked to leave the room while a decision is made

    you’ll be called back into the room and told the decision, although occasionally you may have to wait 3 to 5 days to get a decision letter in the post

    I hope you hear soon. x
