Hi, my name is san63! How did my assessment go?

I have just recently had a phone assessment for my PIP application. I have hearing loss in both ears and cannot function without hearing aids. In addition to this I recently was told my hip has changed to severe and I now need an hip replacement, awaiting letter from specialist. I informed the assessor of this but it's very hard to work out how it went on the day. I still work full time and I wondered if anyone could advise how you know if it was good or not.

    It would be impossible to speculate anything at the moment. Once the assessment report is returned to DWP a decision can take anything up to 12 weeks. Once a decision is 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.
