I got a phone call last week asking me if I would want money in a lump sum and if I had support managing money??? I asked if a decision had been made and if I had been awarded PIP??
 The case manager told me that a decision still had not been made. I really don't understand why I got asked these questions and if this is good news? I even rang yesterday and the gentleman told me that it was currently with the cssc manager as we spoke. He said to ring back by Friday and there should be some kind of update. Please can you put my mind at rest because I don't understand what is going on

    Sometimes that's one of the questions they ask if there's an award. Though I've known that question to be asked and there's no award. This doesn't mean you haven't been awarded, it would be impossible to predict that. I do agree that it's a strange question to ask if no decisions been made. 

    Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do until that decision is made, which can take up to about 12 weeks after the repot was returned. 
    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.
