We have a client who wish to appeal her PIP claim.The deadline is today.Any advice on what we could do.She is getting really anxious.
She can submit an appeal online at https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal (I assume she’s done the MR already).
You can always submit further information/evidence at a later date.
Ok,thanks a lot
For future reference the (usually) absolute deadline for appeals (and MRs) is 13 months, not the 1 month usually stated on DWP decision/notice letters. You will need valid grounds, such as the client failing to act in time due to mental health issues. 90% of the MRs and appeals I submit are late.
Even the 13 month deadline can be crossed if there was an official error in the decision you are appealing.
EDIT: I could go into a lot more detail, but there are already plenty of threads on the topic in the forums :)
