I rang the Pip people today just to see how much longer it will be till I hear 
It said on the phone while I was waiting to get through that after the home assessment it takes about 3 weeks.
I had my assessment the week of Christmas. They told me today thay I won't hear until the 3rd week if January. Is that about right or is it taking longer?
I'm in so much pain and I'm emotionally up the shoot I dunno what to do.

    Usually PIP decisions take 2-4 weeks allowing for the holiday period that would be about right
