Your PIP review is complete. You should receive your decision letter in 2 weeks. Once you receive your letter, contact us if you have any questions. Do not call before you get the letter as we will not be able to tell you the decision. Please remember to contact us if your circumstances change.

    Hi, welcome to the community. You got the exact same text as me when I was waiting for my review. It means they have done a paper based assessment and have come to a decision. You will recieve your decision letter in 2 weeks.

    I know it says not to call pip but I did and they told me what the letter says and what the outcome of your award is if you don't feel like waiting too long. Not sure if they are open today though and will be busy tuesday so if your going to phone perhaps wait till wed/thurs.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.

    I was given enhanced daily living, still waiting for the official letter yet though but royal mail is shockingly bad at the moment so should come this week. My review was complete on the 11th March and I phoned pip and they read the letter they posted out to me over the phone. If you don't want to wait too long phone pip this week and they will read the letter posted out to you with the decision.

    There’s only one thing you should do about any FB groups for benefits… click “leave group” and don’t return. 

    They give the worst advice I’ve ever seen and I’ve been advising with benefits for about 8 years. 

    This is a standard text you’ve received for those going through a review. It’s very unusual to be refused after a paper based assessment, though it can happen. 
    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.

    I agree and it's worse because a lot of people seem to think if it's on fb it must be true and obviously that causes problems especially with benefits.
    The other thing I think that should be shut down is the sites charging people money to win dwp appeals

    For the SDP you need either a daily living PIP award or be registered blind. If not then the SDP ends.
