Appeals and reconsiderations
If you disagree with a decision that we have made, you can ask us to look at the decision again
(called a reconsideration) or you can appeal against it. We will then write to you to tell you whether
the decision has been changed or not.
If you have requested a reconsideration and the decision is not changed, or the decision is changed
to pay you less benefit, you can then submit an appeal. If you have appealed and the decisionis not
changed, or the decision is changed to pay you less benefit, we will send your appeal to the Tribunals
Service for their independent consideration.
You must ask for a reconsideration or make an appeal within one calendar month of the date that
we first notified you of our original decision. If you submit your request outside of one month, you
must also provide good reason for not making your request within the time limit allowed.
