DWP Offering Claimants More Money To Drop Appeals

April 9, 2019

With many thanks to the Scottish Unemployed Workers Network.


Here at Advicenow we have heard from several claimants who, after submitting an appeal, have been contacted by the DWP with a better offer than their first award, if they drop the appeal.

Whilst claimants getting what they are entitled to without having to go to a hearing is a good thing, we are concerned by reports from our users about some of their experiences. We want to know more about this.

We have heard from several claimants who have been contacted with offers of an increased award immediately after submitting the appeal form and without submitting any new evidence. This of course begs the question as to why the award wasn’t changed at the Mandatory Reconsideration stage.

We have also heard from a number of claimants who felt the DWP was trying to pressure into accepting a lower award than they believe they are entitled to.

    I have experience of this.
    I’m awaiting the decision of a MR as they took away my mobility car for the second time in 5 years.

    First time in 2015 and I waited 9 months being housebound until I won my Tribunal.
    Now again they’ve done the same thing and removed my enhanced mobility after an assessment in December.

    The award the gave was reduced to standard but ,and here’s the bribe part, they “understand the many problems you have with self care and limited mobility that I can now apply this award for 5 years instead of the normal 3 year awards you are used to”

    Fuck them!
    I beat them once at Tribunal and I’ll beat them again.
    Never give in or give up hope, keep fighting for what you deserve!

    This is exactly what has just happened to me.Makes it plain how bad the system is when the dw p change the award after submitting the appeal because they know they’d lose at tribunal but uphold it at mr in the hope claimants accept their lies and give up.

      That’s definitely Fraud and Witness Intimidation… their continuing threats/acts of financial harm…

      Therefore it’s all Misconduct in Public Office and Perverting The Course of Justice
      (up to Life in prison for both of those Vulnerable Adult Abusing Hate Crimes)

      All ‘unlawful’, therefore Torture too.

      What the criminal vermin do is starve you to death until you send them anything that the filth can call “new evidence”.

      eg. Photos of you weighing Six Stone.

      Then the criminals use that “new evidence” as a lame excuse and will then repay what their abusing hate criminal frauds have stolen…

    … then they’ll ABET some of their other hate vermin to attempt murder –




  1. DWP’s ‘brutal’ benefits rule that costs millions to disabled people | Govt Newspeak
  2. DWP Offering Claimants More Money To Drop Appeals | Same Difference | Britain Isn't Eating!
