Hi All, I am applying for PIP first time. I originally submitted my application online 4-5 weeks ago (still yet to hearing regarding an assessment). After scrolling through the forum, I realised I probably haven’t fully described how my condition impacts me. Would it be okay for me to add additional information to my application online under the various descriptor headings? I’m not sure if it’s too late?

    Thanks for coming back to me Poppy. I will create a word doc and add additional information hopefully it should help with my application. I rang DWP earlier in the week and they mentioned my application is with the assessment centre - do you think they’ll reach out to me soon for an assessment?
