Hi all I’m new here I had my pip telephone assessment today for mental health ( anxiety, depression & PTSD) the phone call only lasted 36 minutes I felt I was rushed and didn’t get to say what I wanted he also kept saying to me “aww poor thing” which I didn’t like. I’m not feeling good after this. I did send in a lot of evidence would this help do the dwp look at all evidence ?

    Hi there @Rs22 and welcome to the community.

    I'm sorry to hear about your telephone assessor, you really don't need that kind of talk, I totally get that!
    With PIP, they tend to focus on how your issues affect each of the descriptors, so as long as those boxes are ticked you should be ok.  But if they do turn you down, you can ask for a mandatory reconsideration, so please try not to worry too much, as someone with anxiety issues, I know this is often easier said than done.

        We have some super knowledgeable regulars here who will be more than happy to offer advice and support should yo need it. :)
