First Tier Tribunal appeals process - If you still think the decision is wrong

If you appeal against a benefit or tax credit decision a First Tier Tribunal will deal with your appeal. This guide goes through the process of what happens after your appeal is received.

If you still think the decision is wrong

You can only appeal against the tribunal's decision if they are wrong on a point of law.

You will need specialist advice if you think this is the case. You can use the Turn2us Find an Adviser tool to find a local one.

The time limits for appealing against a tribunal decision are strict so it is important to seek specialist advice quickly after receiving your decision.
