    Hi and welcome to the forum, I hope your doing well. Be good to see you around.

    Im from Scotland but still on pip infact just had my review.
    I think it will take a bit off time for everyone from Scotland to get moved over to ADP.

    Good luck if you have applied.
    Take care ❤️

    There's been very few threads regarding ADP. There's lots of information here. https://www.socialsecurity.gov.scot/guidance-resources/guidance/decision-making-guide

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Oh no, how frustrating with it changing everything you put and having to do it all over again @stormy. It sounds like clear definitions, at the very least, would be helpful! Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything we can do to support you  :)

    Anxious waiting for the decision, i seen somewhere else that someone has been waiting from october 2022 for a decision as there is huge back logs apparently, hopefully hear back from them soon.

    Seems like they have more backlogs that PIP for new claims at the moment. PIP decisions for new claims are taking anything up to about 12 weeks for some people.

    Hi I finally got a decision on my claim for ADP after 5 months of waiting.They blamed my Doctor for the wait and moving everyone over from PIP.I had applied for PIP previously and got no points at all.This time i got 11 out of 12 for daily living and 10 out of 12 for mobility.I cant say if they are applying different criteria as they should not be or maybe i just made the mistake of not giving enough information on how my conditions effect my daily life with my PIP application.
