I was very grateful to receive communication from the Social Security Tribunal who have reached out to acknowledge and reassure me that they understand the concerns and are striving to resolve them as efficiently as possible.
I understand and can certainly appreciate that this is a transition year and the SST will have challenges and kinks to iron out.
I understand that there are good people staffing the office and that they really want to ensure that the process is going to work well.
I think we all have no other choice but to patient.
Please ensure if you are in this new appeal system that you use this time to get your case prepared to avoid any further delays.
I know this is a very difficult time for many of you who are waiting - I am bringing your concerns forward and will continue to advise on this blog as I hear more information.
