    Appealing PIP decision and supplementary payments 12th Mar 17 at 9:15 PM
    hi there it has been a while since I have been on site so like to say hi to all


    I hope someone can help me with question


    I had been getting dla and was given a pip assessment in which I was awarded nil points. Obviously I have asked for a reconsideration.


    I am just trying to work out worse case scenario regarding finances


    I work 25 hours per week as a single person and qualified for tax credits as disability premium was allowed as iro dla but I would not qualify using any of the other qualifying benefit conditions therefore once dla finishes in march my tax credit will also end


    if I appeal I know I may get help with supplementary payment for dla entitlement which was low rate only but as I said it did help me with tax credits and helped me continue to work and support me financially


    I have been reading online and head is turning but would I also get a supplementary payment to cover loss of disability premium for tax credits or is this only payable to someone who still would have an entitlement to tax credit even after disability premium would be removed ?


    sorry for being a long winded but hope someone can help

    I don't believe there would be a supplementary payment, but if your PIP appeal is successful tax credits should be reinstated and backdated to the DWP PIP decision date.

    Are you getting help with the appeal?
    Would it be possible to get a extra 5 hours work a week to achieve the 30 hour non disabled criteria?

    In the Province you do get a payment to part cover your loss of DLA as long as you are appealing the PIP decision.

    yes I am and I did read about covering dla award pending appeal outcome and there are some vague references to disability premiums also but not very clear...I am going to contact CAB as they have been very helpful and see if they know a bit more
