Hi there 
I had a video assessment about 6 weeks ago reviewing my pip claim. I’ve been on pip for 2 years. On Friday I received a text message saying your Your PIP review is complete. You should receive your decision letter in 2 weeks. That was first thing in the morning. Then around lunch time I had a missed call and voice mail from DWP and again at 4pm same thing. Missed call and voicemail. Both saying can you ring us back regarding your pip claim. I’ve worried myself sick all weekend about it. Why would they say the review is complete and wait for the decision letter then ring me and few hours later ? Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated as I’m finding all this so stressful and awful. Thank you

    I'm afraid we can only guess what they wanted you for. You will need to ring them first thing tomorrow morning when they open at 9am (best time to call) and they will be able to tell you.
    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.
