The book covers the procedure for making a claim, bringing an appeal, and practice and procedure before the First-tier Tribunal (in England and Wales) and Pensions Appeal Tribunals (in Scotland and Northern Ireland), together with guidance on bringing appeals to the Upper Tribunal.

This book will also be of interest to all those interested in the development of our oldest system of welfare benefits, and in how the special position of the armed forces is reflected in the injury compensation schemes.
