PIP Review Assessment

I have a pip review assessment in the coming weeks, I am worried about it should I be worried or am I other thinking it? 

I've been on PIP for 4 years and I am worried about the review and been declined because I had to file a mandatory reconsideration the first time when I was awarded, my condition has gotten worse also having more disabilities and illness now than the first time but I am aware that they didn't listen the first time.

I have several questions

  • Who are the Independent Assesement Service? I don't remember these last time.
  • Or the Independent Assessment Service fair and good?
  • What steps should I take to prepare for a telephone reassessment?
  • Is there a % of people who are declined on reassessments?
  • Is there anything I should know that I have not asked?
  • Am I overthinking and worried about nothing?

    Independant Assessment Services are who do PIP assessments in various parts of the country. I believe they've been doing them for quite a few years. Capita also do them but it depends which part of the country you live. https://www.mypipassessment.co.uk/

    No, not always but please remember, you will mostly only hear the bad stories.

    If you kept a copy of the form have a read of that before the assessment. Try not to answer any questions with just a yes or no and try to give as much detail as possible. However, all the information should have been included in the form you filled in.

    51% of reviews have the award maintained, 21% are refused, 19% increased, 9% decreased. All official stats are here. https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/personal-independence-payment-statistics-to-july-2023/personal-independence-payment-official-statistics-to-july-2023

    It's perfectly normal to feel anxiou and worried at any stage of a claim, most people feel the same. My own personal experience i've never had any issues.



    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.

    Thanks for the help, I believe capatia did the assesement last last time for myself, I suppose you only ever hear bad, I have a copy of the form but we also sent in additinal evidence through local welfare support after the form about issues. The going into detail got me bad points last time as I have autism and over explain but they said I have no communication issues and confident so that worries me. I'm on the lowest so can't decrease so thats concerning.
