PIP assessment waiting time for report

Catie39 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hello I’m new to the group and just wondering if any one can give me any advice as my anxiety is eating me up. 

I applied for pip back in November I had my assessment two weeks and one day ago. It was very long and drawn out and my anxiety got the better of me. 
Ive been extremely stressed and chewed up ever since and to top it off I’ve rang several times for a copy of the report and I’m been told it’s still not back from the assessor which is making me even worse after reading most people have received a text within 48hrs letting them know their report is back. 

Has anybody had a similar experience ? 

Thanks Catie

    It maybe in an audit. Sometimes reports are chosen at random for an audit. If this happens it delays them returning it because it won’t be returned until the audit has been completed.

    You can ring the assessors and ask if it’s been returned. If it’s in an audit 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.

    Hi @Catie39, welcome to the community. I hope Poppy's reply has helped reduce your anxiety a little bit and you're able to get things cleared up :) just wanted to say hello and welcome! 

    Hi @slamdunk23, welcome too! Sorry to hear your anxiety isn't so good at the moment, it's not easy. Is there anything that helps you when you're feeling very anxious about things? I hope things start getting better for you soon.
