This exercise regards the decision in OM [OM v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions (PIP): [2017] UKUT 458 (AAC)]  which was handed down on the 23rd November 2017. This decision refers to DLA claimants transferring to PIP, who failed to attend or participate in their PIP consultations, and who had their DLA terminated as a result, but where, subsequently, DWP Decision Makers or Tribunals have decided the claimant had a ‘good reason’ for not attending or participating. The decision states that in these instances claimants’ DLA awards should be reinstated, until a final decision on their PIP claim, and back paid, as necessary. We accept that the same approach applies where claimants who failed to provide information or evidence were later found to have ‘good reason’ for the failure to comply.
