Pip assessment

Hi guys i had this text from pip. I got told i highly likely wont need an independent health assessment. I had to go through a tribunal 3 years ago to get awarded high rate for pip. I am stressed that i will have to have a face consultation and then another tribunal despite me sending in hard evidence. My mental health is deteriorating badly atm and i am worried this will send me over the edge. I already had my beta blockers upped cos the stress is impacting my heart condition. Has anyone had this on a review after a tribunal win? Thanks guys

Hello from Independent Assessment Services. We conduct Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessments for the Department for Work and Pensions DWP. This is for information purposes only, to let you know that we are managing your PIP assessment. We will look at the available evidence and will contact you with an appointment if we need to have a consultation with you. You can find information about the service we provide at https://www.mypipassessment.co.uk. You do not need to contact us.

    Who advised you that you highly likely won’t need an assessment? 

    The majority of people have assessments and they are usually by telephone. If an assessment is needed and they send you an appointment for a face to face you can contact them and ask for a telephone assessment. 
    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.

    Ok so someone from the call centre who have very little knowledge or experience of PIP, other than to read from a screen. Sadly, their advice isn’t correct and they do often give incorrect advice. 

    There are very long delays with reviews and some members have waited a year after returning their form. 

    Your existing award will continue until a decision is made on your review.
