Do Pip call you ?
 I didn’t answer an 0800 number due to my anxiety i googled it and it was pip number? No message left ?
I'm suffering from Asthma and hearing loss on the right.

 I have had a phone assessment couple of weeks ago so can’t understand why they would phone again out the blue ?

is this a bad sign?

    Hi @ibbydre33 - & welcome to the community. Sometimes you'll get a call after your assessment as they may have a few questions to ask before a decision is made; nothing can be read into this other than they need to have these questions answered.

    Hi @ibbydre33  they called me as well after the assessment because they needed to ask me a few additional questions, maybe they will send you a letter saying that they tried to call you and will call you again.

    Thanks for the info. Can they make decision on the same day and award for that. As I am suffering from Asthma and hearing loss on the right.

     @ibbydre33   they needed to ask me a few additional questions regarding my health condition before they decided about my pip award decision.

    I don’t understand the reason for the poll. It’s not a good or bad thing they rang, sometimes they do ring if they have some questions to ask.
    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.

    They were confirming my identity and bank details and said decision will be made. Not sure the outcome.
