This would need to be requested in writing to the Benefit Office (address below) or requested at Area Benefit Office or via email within one calendar month of the original decision date.

If you wish to ask the Benefit Office to reconsider the original decision you should contact the Benefit Office (address below) in writing or request at Area Benefit Office or via email within one calendar month of the original decision (or date given to you if you have requested a Statement of Reasons) and request the decision is reconsidered. Please give the full reason why you think the decision is incorrect. The reconsideration would be carried out by a different Officer than had made the original decision and you would be informed in writing of the outcome.

If you are unhappy with the reconsideration outcome you can request an Appeal by completing the Appeals Form. The form can be printed from the web site or you can request a paper form, from the Benefit Office (address below) or pick one up from an Area Benefit Office. The Appeal Form will need to be completed and returned to the Benefit Office (address below) or hand delivered to Area Benefit Office within one calendar month of the reconsideration decision.

You also have the option of not asking the Benefit Office to reconsider the original decision, but go straight to requesting an Appeal. This would need to be requested by completing the Appeals Form. The form can be printed from the web site or you can request a paper form, from the Benefit Office (address below) or pick one up from an Area Benefit Office. The Appeal Form will need to be completed and returned to the Benefit Office (address below) or hand delivered to Area Benefit Office within one calendar month of the reconsideration decision.
