I had my assesment on the 12/03.
Got a copy of my report on the 25/03 through the post. 
Assessor believes I should be entitled to standard care and higher mobility. 
I sent plenty of evidence so im confident enough the decision maker will go with the report.
Just wondering the time frame on a decision from now.
I'm in the north east of England if that makes a difference.
I'm just sick of the anxiety and being so skint when PIP can make such a difference to my household.
Also would they be able to give me an update if I did phone up?
Thank you

    Timescales for decisions are up to 12 weeks after the assessment report was returned. 

    You can ring PIP anytime but they won’t be able to tell you anything until the decision is made. Once it’s 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.
