Benefits Appeals Tribunals


You do not need to have representation at the tribunal - the process is designed so that people can explain their case themselves. The tribunal panel will ask questions about your health problems and how they affect your ability to carry out certain tasks.

You can ask a family member or friend to go with you for moral support
