Appeal against a benefits decision
Once we work out your benefit, we will send you letters telling you how we worked out your claim.
Making an appeal
If you do not agree with the decision, you can:
- ask us for a written explanation of how we assessed your benefit entitlement
- ask us to look at the decision again
- appeal against the decision to an independent tribunal.
You can only ask for any of these things if you are the person affected by the decision, and you must do this within one calendar month from the date of our decision.
