New pip claim

Hi everyone, it’s my first time writing on here so I hope I’m writing in the correct place?!

I made a new claim for pip a few months ago, I had my phone assessment just over 2 weeks ago and today I received a text saying “we have not yet made a decision on your pip claim” .. after reading through hundreds of posts on here, I can see this is just a generic text but has anyone received the same text and then gone on to not be awarded? 

Thankyou 😊

    There's many members that have been awarded and refused after this text. The text means nothing more than it states.
    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.

    How long have you been waiting from application to assessment?

    @faraway_21 I phoned up to ask for the forms on the 28th march, I received the forms filled them in and sent them back and they received them on the 27th April, I had my phone assessment on the 16th June and I received a text this morning (3rd July) saying they haven’t made a decision yet.

    @Jodilb92 Welcome to the community! :) 

    Try not to worry too much, like you said, it is a generic text. Hopefully you'll hear soon!

    @Jodilb92 I have a similar timeline to you although I skipped the 'we haven't made a decision yet' text and got the 'we have awarded you PIP' text this morning. 
    Fingers crossed you get a decision soon
