About us

The First-tier Tribunal for Scotland Social Security Chamber ("the Chamber") is independent and impartial.

We listen to both sides involved in the appeal and consider all the facts and evidence before making a decision on the appeal. 

Benefits you can appeal

At present the only Social Security Scotland benefits that have a right of appeal to the Chamber are:

 Best Start Grant

These benefits are awarded by Social Security Scotland. In time more benefits will be devolved to Scotland and all appeals will be heard by this Chamber.
