If the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) changes your Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (PIP), you can challenge the decision. There are strict time limits. First you must usually ask for a Mandatory Reconsideration.
If you think the Mandatory Reconsideration decision is wrong, you can appeal against it. There are strict time limits in this situation too.
There is information and guidance available to help you represent yourself.
