    Great news Bobby!!! However it can't be indefinitely because those awards no long exist with PIP. 10 years is the max amount of time with 9 years before the next review. None the less, that's still great news!

      Hi Denise

      The judge said indefinitely but letter said it is inappropriate to fix a term. I asked what this meant. She said indefinitely.

      I think you've been miss informed on the actually meaning of that "inappropriate to fix a term meaning" Having used google to find out exactly what that is because there really isn't any indefinite awards with PIP. On going (10 years) is the absolute maximum amount of time anyone can have before review. Anyway, it means that it's now up to the DWP when they review you, it could be anything between 3 months and 10 years.

    Hi Mark,

    that's really fantastic news, I'm so pleased that you have been awarded what you deserve.  Did your mum go in with you?   Hopefully you will be able to forget about it all for now.  Well done you. x

      Thanks Sukes.

      Yes she did. But I managed to answer nearly all the questions myself. They asked my mum different things. But at least it's over now. XxX

    Hi, How long did you have to wait for a tribunal date after a mandatory reconsideration?  I am asking this because I have been waiting since October 2016.

      Hi there.

      My MR was sent in January this year.

      I was offered a cancellation a few weeks ago. Or I'm not sure how long I would have waited. My mum phoned the courts as I had more evidence. It was after this call I was offered this cancellation.

      I think it depends in which area you live in. As not every area offered facilities for tribunals. Give the court a ring. And ask for any update.

      Hi Melanie

      It certainly is stressful. I was lucky my mum did all paper work and phone calls. As my memory has been effected by MS along with many other things. Butbim glad for everyone who wins what their entitled to. Good luck with things. XxX

    Just had my Tribunal hearing and have been awarded PIP Daily Living standard care, backdated to Oct and awarded until Oct 2020.

    The court based their decision on my evidence and carers - both of which DWP refuted and said they relied on assessor in their decision, which makes me realise that it is worth challenging DWP and providing supportive evidence.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you in thanking Denise and others for the help and guidance they have given.

      Hi Steve I got my pip back I had my tribuneral on the 17 th July which went well they couldn't tell me there and then so they made the decision on the same day and they sent me the letter out and revived it on the Wednesday and I got the standard I lost my DLA in the September but it turned out good in the end
