Benefit cut appeal letter

Download our letter and appeal

In December issue of our London edition, we ran a feature by Alan Murdie, a barrister with the Zacchæus 2000 Trust, explaining how changes brought about by "the biggest shake-up of the benefits system for 60 years" could mean people losing their claims. If this happens to you or someone you know, you still have the right of appeal.

Alan Murdie wrote: "wherever possible, you should get help or advice with a tribunal, but people can win them by themselves." The template of an appeal letter is now on up on the home page of our website (thepavement. - look under 'Your rights') will help if you want to appeal a sanction to your claim.
