FOR YOUR ATTENTION BLOGGIES. Share it to let others know their rights.
The problem with strict time limits for people with health conditions should be obvious. They may have issues that do not always allow them to appeal quickly. And this is something the Upper Tribunal judges thought should be “obvious”.
They ruled that: “We have concluded that as a matter of statutory interpretation a claimant in such circumstances has a statutory right of appeal to the first-tier tribunal.”
Basically, if you are disabled and want to appeal the 30 day response time has now been extended.
Unsure of how this will be backdated or how long a claimant will have to appeal.
But this is dismantling their POLICIES/VISIONS ( IDS), which they thought could overrule The LAW.
