When you can ask for a review
You can ask for a review if:
- we’ve made a decision that you don't agree with, or
- you're unhappy with the level of service you are or are not getting.
A decision could include:
- if your service is Qualifying Service
- if an illness or injury is related to Qualifying Service
- if you qualify for support
- what level of impairment applies to you.
How to ask for a review
You must submit an application for review within 6 months of being notified of the decision. We'll only accept a late application if there's a very good reason for the delay.
1. Talk to us first
We'll explain why the decision was made and can put things right if there's been a mistake. We may be able to resolve things without you having to go through a formal review.
