Appeal against a benefits decision - How do you ask for a revision?

How Do They Ask for a Revision?

The person affected must write a signed letter to the Council within one calendar month of the date on the benefit or overpayment decision notice.  This should include details of the decision   you are challenging and detailed reasons why you think the original decision is wrong..  Emails cannot be accepted.  If you write in after the four-week deadline, you must state why the appeal is late.

In exceptional circumstances the Council may extend the time limit for requesting a decision to be revised. The person affected must write to the Council giving reasons for not requesting a revision at the appropriate time. The Council cannot consider a late request for a revision where the request is made 13 months or later, after the decision notice was first issued.
