    Hi there @Carter1993 and thanks for your query, it sounds like things are progressing with your application. I'm glad your assessment went well. Is it your first time applying for PIP? 

    I can't say certain whether them asking for your bank details means you've been successful, but I do know decisions can take anywhere between 2 and 12 weeks at the moment. 

    I'm sorry I can't be more reassuring for you. Do you have any particular ways you find helpful to manage stress and anxiety, perhaps we can help? :)

    Hi there @Alex_Scope Should i be concerned they wrote to my GP 2 weeks after my video assessments my GP called me in so we could fill the form out together.

    No need to apologise you have been great unfortunately patience has never really been my strongest point and it has just been such a long process

    No I don't think you need to worry, they probably wanted to contact your GP so that they could make sure they had all the information they need to understand how your conditions impact you day to day. I'm glad your GP called you to go through it together, that's positive :) 

    I understand, I remember the wait for my PIP, some years ago now. It's not easy, but you'll get there :) 

    Do ask if there's anything else you need a hand with, or if you just want to chat to take your mind off this, the coffee lounge is a good place to head to.
