Hi all, basically I would just like to find out people views on pip process, so I have had my F2F on 29th December for RRMS and fibromyalgia, I had the accessors report and I'm awaiting the final decision. 
How long did people wait? After f2f and if the f2f scored me 10 on mobility will dwp go with that and place me on standered.

    Hi cmcmahon and welcome

    Decisions are taking up to 8 weeks at the moment but you could try ringing them after 4.
    Usually the DWP case manager will award in line with the report

    Hey - thanks for your reply, I mean it's a struggle being 27 with 3 children having all these things happening so fast being dignosied with loads. An then the struggle and stress of the process is a nightmare, it's like it's never ending.

    Hi all 
    so I got award enhanced daily and standered mobility but I have asked for it to be looked at again, as the ATSO contradicts himself says I walk 15m but then put down 20m no more then 50m - all the way through the form he states I need aids for everything I do but then says I can plan a journey and go out. 
    He forgot to add the fact the ms has started to destroy my spine and I'm due for MRI as an tomorrow, the reason I didn't use my crutch on the day was due to really poor grip in my hands. 

    Whats people'views on them looking at the decision and changing the award I was scored 12 for daily and 10 for mobility
