First Tier Tribunal appeals process - Possible outcomes of tribunals
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.
Possible outcomes of tribunals
The benefit or tax credit office will have to make any changes it has been ordered to by the tribunal.
If the tribunal agree that the decision was wrong, you will receive a letter from the benefit or tax credit office confirming that the decision has been changed and the amount of any benefit or tax credit payment that may be owed to you as a result.
If the tribunal decides it can't change the decision, you will receive a letter confirming this.
