Hi everyone I’m new here and just wondered if anyone could help me I had my assessment today for lwc and the assessor only spoke of one of my conditions CFS at the end I wanted to tell her about the rest of my conditions and she said to be honest with you I don’t think you have anything to worry about and you should not be asked to look for work but it is up to the decision maker but personally I think you will be found not fit to work. Is this how it’s supposed to be for them to tell me this or not I have had multiple pip assessments and never been told anything about how it went. Any advice would be appreciated thanks

    Welcome to the community @faifai2915!

    I think it varies quite a lot with each assessor. I haven't heard many stories of them giving an idea of the outcome, but that doesn't mean they don't happen. Fingers crossed you get the result you're hoping for :)

    No, it's not what's supposed to happen. It's the their job to tell you anything at all. They do not make decisions, only a decision maker can do that. Once the report is written and returned a decision can take anything up to about 12 weeks. 

    With regards to only talking about 1 condition then yes, that does happen because if they have enough of information for your other conditions they won't ask any further questions related to it. 
    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.

    If it's UC you're claiming and you have access to a journal then you can put a message on there to ask but they don't always agree to send it before a decision is made.
