Personal Independence Payment: Appeals

Question for Department for Work and Pensions

UIN 169908, tabled on 16 March 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 9 March 2021 to Question 161811 on Personal Independent Payment, whether her Department has written to all individuals affected by the judgement to (a) inform them whether they were successful and (b) explain the appeals process.

Our progress update published on 25 February 2021 set out the number of cases cleared against the MH and RJ Upper Tribunal (UT) decisions. All these claimants will have been sent a decision letter, including next steps if they disagree with our decision. We are still reviewing claims and will send a decision letter to everyone we review.

As I explained in my previous answer (161810), we are writing to other claimants, explaining how we apply the UT decisions and letting them know they can get in touch with us if they think they are affected. We will review any claim where claimants ask us to and they will receive a decision letter.

This is a very complex and substantial exercise and we are committed to ensuring that claimants get the PIP they are entitled to.
