Appealing against Tribunal Decisions

Tribunal JudgementMany people disagree with decisions made by the Department of Work and Pensions and local authorities about their benefit awards. Relevant areas prompting benefit appeals may include:

  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Employment And Support Allowance
  • Housing Benefit
  • Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Industrial Injuries Benefit

Just because the benefits agencies have made a decision about your benefit, doesn’t necessarily mean that the decision is correct!!!

In 2014 I attended 32 1st tier tribunals, winning 30 and losing 2.
I was successful in winning a total of 198,000 in benefit payments for those appellants. The biggest win was for 19.800 in back payments The smallest win was 2,100 in back payments. These appellants also went on to claim regular benefit payments.
This is money that would be sat in the governments coffers.
