edited March 22 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I had my pip review on the 5th March my review went into audit where I had 2  calls to ask more  questions the whole process is hard enough the first time but to have to go through it a second and third time as the auditor wanted to no more 
I received a text Wednesday am to say that the review was with a DM and would contact me in 6 weeks 
I have requested a copy off my
report for a third party that helped me with form to look at it and see can they confirm it before
Also they are putting in a complaint as I have social anxiety and it’s worse since the repeat calls 
I really worried I loose the award 
if you don’t get a text would that mean they have withdrew the award

    Decisions can take up to about 12 weeks after the report was returned, rather than the 6 weeks you were informed. 

    Sometimes after you’ve had the assessment they may ring back to ask further questions if needed. 

    I totally understand how much stress this causes but needing more information can’t be helped. I would rather this than have them make the wrong decision. 

    Once the decision is made you will be contacted. 
    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.

    Hya @reviews2024 and welcome to the community. 

    I can see Poppy has already assisted you with your queries, but I wanted to stop by and say hello. Please try not to worry too much about your award, decisions can take a while to sort out and communication can be sporadic. :)

    I'm still waiting for my PIP review, I sent my forms back last March, so I totally understand the worry. But they'll pay you until the decision has been made, so that's something. :)

    I know it's easier said than done, but for now it's best to try and push it to the back of your mind, or you'll end up making yourself ill with worry! That's speaking from experience haha.  IF (a big if) they turn you down, you can still ask for a MR and go to tribunal if needed. So it's not the end of the road. :)
