Hi everyone,I applied last June for PIP and I just got the assessment copy today.
The report look like they advise 13 points for daily living and 12 for mobility,also reviewing in 18 months.
If the DWP assessor will confirm it,the 18 month will start in June as the backdated payment?
Also I will be contacted for the renewal?
Thanks

    As you have practically stated, a report is a recommendation only. If the Case Manager does go with it however, your award will start from the date you phoned to make the PIP application and as such, be backdated to then. 

    The renewals process is a little different to this and you can be contacted from anytime up to a year before an award is due to end, normally between 6-8 months. You really are best to wait for the actual decision letter for confirmation of this.

    Heya @Dan83, welcome to the community!

    I can see you've already been helped out, but I just wanted to say hi.

     I've moved your post to the PIP category so more people will be able to see it.  But if you wanted to stick around and chat or play a few games, I can recommend our Coffee Lounge. :)

    Hi,good news today 
    This morning I received the text saying that I was awarded,then I called and they confirmed that I got enhanced on both until April 2026.
    I will wait the letter as look like the payment is been backed just from August and not June when I made the application.

    Great news. When you first apply for PIP you must have had the difficulties for at least 3 months. If you didn’t then this could be why it’s not paid from the date you rang. 
    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 your advice,The difficulty started before June but they finally found the diagnosis in end of June,maybe they’re taking this on account.
    The only way to know is to wait the letter..
    But honestly I’m very happy and I don’t think to do MR as will be more stressful
