PIP waiting times for assessment appointment

Morning all,

I hope you are all keeping well.

I applied for PIP on 03/01/2024. I received the form for how my disability affects me and have had confirmation that it was received on 08/01/24.

My question is... how long is the current waiting time for just the F2F assessment?

In the meantime i have been awarded LCWRA and in receipt of this through my UC account.

This is all new to me so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Stay safe and well all.

    It varies wildly depending on backlogs in your area and each individual case. Some wait a few weeks and others a few months. 
    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.

    Hi again @zog200 and congrats on your LCWRA award. :)

    I'm afraid wait times can vary massively from one area to the next, but you could be waiting a few months for the assessment.
