edited February 15 in PIP, DLA, and AA
So I had a telephone assessment  for my pip n the only thing that has changed is my arthritis in both of my knees so this time  my support worker  said that I need to go for the high rate of mobility so I did. I don't understand as to why they message you stating  that the review is complete and that I need to wait 2 weeks for the decision. So I decided to ring then up n when u go through the automated system  n they tell u what your next pip payment will be  n it hasn't changed . Am I reading too much in to this or shall I ring them n see what they say

    Hi @zico74 and welcome to the community. :)

    I understand the confusion there.  The automated system wont have updated yet and wont be until a decision has been made and uploaded to the DWPs systems.  I'd try and just wait for them to get back to you with their decision.

    The automated payment line is well known for giving incorrect information so you shouldn’t rely on that.

    The text you received is a standard text for those waiting for review decisions. Although it advises you not to ring them you can ring them anytime to ask what the decision is and 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.
