my neighbour who is an alcoholic with various health problems (drink related) was signed off incapacity benefit with zero points. she appealed & got 12 points still not enough to get her benefit back. she appealed to the upper tribunal & won.
the judge decided that the previous judge had made an error on relying on the nurses evidence & from going from o points to 12 points..
in the letter of which i have seen it said if she can get supporting letter of 3 point from her gp, her benefit will be reinstated.
i am pleased for her, but at the same time i think she is much fitter than myself, she has a social life & does her own shopping.
i too went from zero points to 12 at my appeal, so i have sent a letter to the upper tribunal.. im not expecting anything but i think its worth a try, after all we cant lose anything can we??
