Hi i received a letter from IAS saying a telephone appt has been booked .They claim they need more info about how my disability affects me as they have contacted someone .I dont know who they have contacted -they had a report from my carers and if it is my gp then he knows little about how my conditions affect me.I have been on DLA/PIP since 2000 -enhanced care no mobility.Am concerned that they might stop my PIP .My conditions and ability to do things/get about etc are worse now,if my gp has been contacted he does not know what difficulties i have ,i have had more aids added around the house-grab rails,stair rails,toilet frame /raised seat,My PIP is the only benefit i receive and am concerned i might lose it and could not cope with the stress of appealing/tribunal  etc.

    If you have details of your GP then yes it could be them. I think at this stage it’s impossible to predict what the decision will be. 

    I hope that when you filled out the form that you put down as much relevant information as possible and treated it as a new claim.

    During the assessment please make sure you don’t answer any questions with just a simple yes or no. Try to give as much detail as possible. The assessment can last anywhere from 20 to 120 minutes. Once the report is returned a decision can take up to 12 weeks. 
    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.
