    Moved from DLA to PIP but claim was rejected 9th Sep 17 at 4:08 PM
    I have been claiming DLA since I was 11 and I am now 24. They moved me from DLA to PIP but they rejected my claim. Its for Aspbergers and ADHD and the man who filled out the form didn't seem to know anything about either and its contains a lot of fake news and incorrect information.

    I am obviously going to appeal it but I was wondering what are my chances of the appeal succeeding?

    Who filled out the form?

    So, you first have to ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration

    https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benefits/sick-or-disabled-people-and-carers/pip/appeals/mandatory-reconsideration/.

    Be aware of the time limits. It may well be worth getting help with this from CAB or somewhere similar. It is unlikely that the decision will be overturned at this stage.

    If it isn't you then appeal to an independent tribunal. The figures for the decision being changed here are much higher. There is an approximate 60% success rate though these figures can be skewed a bit depending on where you live. But, much more chance

    Who filled the form out? Who ever filled the form (PIP2) out for you would only be going by the information that you told them. Do you have a copy of the assessment report? If you don't then i'd advice ring DWP and asking for a copy of this. As adviced by Neil get intouch with CAB they'll advice and help with writing the letter for the MR.

    Your needs will have changed a great deal since you were eleven, and it comes across that you are an intelligent young adult, capable of managing your finances (and helping others with theirs), driving and dealing with official bodies. Also travelling regularly to Ireland. What are your current care needs, have you looked at the descriptors to see which you feel you meet?

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. Take a look at these PIP descriptors and see which ones apply to you.
