    Hi harry

    Usually PIP decisions take 2-4 weeks following an assessment. However you should ask for a copy of the assessment report which should be available 2-5 days after the assessment

    Home visits can be given as a recognition of your condition but not necessarily.
    Capita tend to give home visits at random, Atos less so. Sometimes it is just that a space occurs and you are next on the list
