Does anyone know what happens if you are given no points at medical and submit an appeal what happens if the DWP don't get round to dealing with the appeal. I had my ATOS medical in September, was awarded zero points (surprise, surprise) and benefit removed. I appealed. Benefit reinstated pending outcome of appeal. I moved house. ESA stopped. Mega drama of never ending round of phone calls reinstated. Still no word of tribunal date. My contributions based 1 year ends 7th January and according to DWP they are running behind and haven't got round to sending paperwork to tribunal serice.
I assume this means from 7th January I am left potless?
Also, IF tribunal does ever go ahead, do you get back pay of higher rate back to week 14 of claim?
I know I am probably clutching at straws but am at wits end-AGAIN!!!
