Matilda said:The DWP say that it might not be necessary for assessment companies to do f2f in the case of long-term, degenerative diseases. But assessment companies are ignoring this guidance and doing f2f anyway in nearly all cases: they are afraid of recriminations from DWP if they don't do f2f.@jose2. The timeframes vary. God knows how they are worked out - maybe a benefits advisor would have a good idea. There is no age limit for PIP reassessments once you have been given a PIP award. I was given five years but if I win my appeal I hope that may be increased.@wildlife. Atos/Capita don't have much medical knowledge, either!
