So confusing!!!

Hi everyone, i've received a letter from HM Courts & Tribunal Services in regards to my application for DLA and would just like other people's opinion about if I should fill in the form and say i'm going to attend in person or should I just let it go a head without me there. Really don't know what to do, plus it says about taking a representative with me but I have no idea who that could be!! Any help would be fantastic xx

  • Go , I did . They prefer to see the person and it shows then joe u really are . I took a friend .

  • My advice would be go Hun as I thought same wasn't sure if to go or not I'm gonna go to mine with support seeing u as the real you and with u talking about your self and life how it is for you living with fibro gives them a better insight of what you go through daily if you don't easier decision for them haven't met you so will decide on what they think hope goes well for you all the best for yours I'm routen for ya my mum and social work think I've got a good chance of winning if so will be one less thing to worry about for 2 yrs until next time gentle hugs x

  • Hi, I was in the same position myself. I applied for ESA, and was turned down. Then it went to an appeal, and then to a tribunal!! I decided not to go, and lost my case. I am now appealing again, and am getting some new evidence together. I also applied for DLA, and was turned down for that as well. So I have decided to go to my DLA tribunal this time, I think it is my best chance for getting a good result. There are a couple of things I have done which you might like to try. I have contacted my m.p. for support. Also I have registered as disabled through my local council's health and community services department. I thought this may count in my favour when claiming benefits. Good luck, whatever you decide to do. xx

  • Thank you everyone for all your comments, can't say i'm looking forward to it but think i'll attend the tribunal, I haven't got a date yet but they have said i'm looking at between 14-18 weeks before I get my tribunal date xx

  • If your still having problems please private message me ... very willing to offer help where possible
