PIP appeal – health improved before hearing


Recent successful PIP appeal, awarded enhanced daily living for 12 months from the decision under appeal. In the decision notice the tribunal explained why there was a time limited award of EDL (which we agreed with) but made reference to an ongoing entitlement to standard DL including which activities and points would be relevant going forward.

I expected a ‘stepped’ award in this situation but they have instead stated that a new claim should have been made when the change occurred and that a new decision maker is not bound by their decision.

Is this approach right? if not am I better going for set aside or written reasons and appeal to upper tribunal?

Any help much appreciated
