A relevant decision is any matter concerning a claim for benefit. For example, the amount of benefit payable, the rent eligible for benefit, the calculation of a claimant's income or the calculation and recovery of an overpayment. Some decisions, mainly administrative decisions, do not carry a right of appeal. You will be notified if the matter you are disputing does not carry the right of appeal.
A request for a revision means that we will look again at our decision regarding a claim for benefit and we will make sure that it has been done correctly.
An appeal means that The Tribunal Service will consider our decision.
