This can change at any time as different information becomes available.</p><p>The current threat level from international terrorism is judged to be SEVERE, meaning an attack is highly likely.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The information requested is set out in the table below:</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Current and comparative mean waiting times<sup>1</sup> for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) appeals</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October – December 18<sup>2</sup></p></td><td><p>31 weeks</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>October – December 17</p></td><td><p>25 weeks</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>1. Waiting time is interpreted as average clearance time - time taken from appeal receipt to outcome.</p><p>2. The latest period for which data are available</p><p>The volume of appeals against decisions on PIP has built up since it was introduced as a new benefit, incrementally over time, from 2013. As the number of appeals has increased, so has the average waiting time for an appeal outcome.</p><p>Waiting times are calculated from receipt of an appeal to its final disposal. An appeal is not necessarily disposed of at its first hearing. The final disposal decision on the appeal may be reached after an earlier hearing had been adjourned (which may be directed by the judge for a variety of reasons, such as to seek further evidence), or after an earlier hearing date had been postponed (again, for a variety of reasons, often at the request of the appellant). An appeal may also have been decided at an earlier date by the First-tier Tribunal, only for the case to have gone on to the Upper Tribunal, to be returned once again to the First-tier, for its final disposal.</p><p>Waiting times can fluctuate temporarily and geographically, owing to a number of variable factors, including volumes of benefit decisions made locally, availability of medical/disability members, venue capacity and the complexity of the issue in dispute. Any disparity in waiting times is monitored and investigated locally.</p>
