can I ring to ask to speak to the decision maker pip reconsideration ?
Hello it's my first time on here, after reading some comments seems as though everyone who applies for pip is left waiting and wondering if they are to believed. I had my face to face pip assessment on 14/9, received my decision letter on 5/10 (letter dated 27/9) I was awarded 6 points for daily living and 4 points for mobility. I had already asked for a copy of the assessors report as I felt humiliated and not believed. The assessor was abrupt and uncaring!! I got decision and copy of report on the same day. You hear horror stories, just like a lot of people you look at it and think is this my details. So many inaccuracy's and non truths I could not believe it. I have mental health issues a defective spine bulging discs, nerve compression and spondylosis and I'm in severe pain every day, I didn't cope well at the assessment at all. The report said I could stand up easily, walk at normal pace etc but this is not true. I have said there must be cctv and I have asked for this to be reviewed in my MR which I sent in on 8/10. I have rang to check if it has been received and was told it has been scanned onto the system on 11/10, my question is (sorry for going on) can I ring to ask to speak to the case worker? Would they tell me anything over the phone? Has anyone done this and is sending in a MR even worth it ? Any help would be appreciated thanks
