Work Capacity Decisions: Merit reviews & Legal Support

If your appeal to the insurer hasn't resulted in them overturning their decision you can make a second appeal to the Regulator, called a merit review. 

Your Solicitor can now access financial compensation for assisting you to complete this review.  This applies to new applications for review only made after 16/12/2016.

It is important that you provide all information to your lawyer at the time they agree to assist you. the time limit on making a claim will still be 30 days from the time you receive the insurers letter with the outcome of your internal review.
