Pip follow up call

I had my telephone assessment last week for pip with Capita. Today I had a phone call from the DWP asking for some security information and told me my decision letter would take 7-10 working days to arrive. They didn’t give me a decision over the phone 

Is this a good sign?

    It doesn't mean anything other than you weren't told what that decision was today. If that decision was made today then you can ring PIP tomorrw and if it's been made and they can see what the decision is they will tell you.
    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.

    Hey there @rj123456 and welcome to the community. 

    As Poppy has said, they're just getting more information, but I'm wishing you all the best luck with your decision.  Please keep us updated. :)
