69% Of Claimants Win PIP And ESA Appeals

March 12, 2018

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

The proportion of PIP and ESA claimants who win their appeal at first tier tribunal has now climbed to an extraordinary 69%, according to figures released this week by the Tribunals Service.

The figures show that the percentage of claimants winning their appeal has risen from 65% in the first quarter of 2017/18 to 68% in the second quarter and 69% in the third quarter.

The success rate for ESA is also currently at 69%, although this represents a slight fall from a high of 70% recorded in the last quarter of 2016/17.

The success rate for DLA currently stands at 61%.

The figures also show that there has been a decrease of 1% in the number of social security appeals lodged compared to the same quarter last year.

However, it is clear that the Tribunals Service is struggling to cope with the level of demand, with an increase of 47% in the number of cases awaiting a hearing.
