Waiting for PIP decision - mostly positive assessment report

Pan Community member Posts: 4 Connected

I started my application for PIP mid October 2023 and got a paper-based assessment. We only had the HP call my spouse a couple of times for clarification. On Monday we got the message that the DWP got the report, we got a copy the next day after requesting it. I don't 100% agree with everything the HP has written to be honest. But from the ticks on the report we can see she suggests 14 points daily living, 10 mobility. So I feel like no point in complaining. 

However, how likely is it that the DWP will follow the HP report? I am really trying not to get my hopes up but I am really nervous

    Hi @Pan - & welcome to the community. The DWP decision maker does usually go with the assessor's recommendation, but very occasionally they don't. Here's hoping for a good outcome for you :)
