PIP: What to Do If You Disagree With A Payment Decision – Act Immediately
PIP PAYMENTS DO NOT ALWAYS GO PERFECTLY, and in some situations, a person may disagree with a decision and decide to take action.
PIP, or Personal Independence Payment, is a benefit that can assist millions of people who are disabled or have a health condition. Extra costs can occur in many circumstances for persons living with health issues, and PIP is designed to help. The amount a person receives is determined on how their illness affects them rather than the illness itself.
People can expect to receive anywhere from £23.70 to £89.60 every week to help them meet their needs.
Individuals can apply for PIP by calling the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and explaining their situation.
However, there are times when certain people will disagree with a decision made regarding their claim.
There are hurdles from time to time, whether it is an outright rejection or a lower amount than projected.
The Department of Work and Pensions, on the other hand, has devised a method to address these possible concerns and provide clarification.
In a process known as “mandatory reconsideration,” Britons will be entitled to appeal a decision about their claim.
If any of the following apply, a person can do so:
Certain factors cannot be considered, while others may be taken into account without recourse.
This is dependent on the circumstances, and if this applies to you, it will be stated in your original decision letter.
Within one month of the date of the decision, a person must request that the mandatory reconsideration process take place.
Britons will need to contact the benefits office that made the decision in order to start the procedure.
This can be done over the phone, in writing, or by completing and returning a form.
In some circumstances, a person may be unsure whether or not they can request compelled reconsideration.
The government advises these people to contact their benefits office, as they will be able to explain why they were denied PIP and address any questions they may have.
Even after interacting with the benefits office, people might request that the procedure be finished.
While the one-month deadline is a hard and fast law, there are specific scenarios in which persons may ask for a reconsideration after that time has passed.
