    Hi tombo and welcome

    It is just a standard letter
    Have you had a f2f assessment ?
    If so have you requested a copy of the report ?

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    I had f2f 3wks ago and it was very challenging assessor was very defensive and l was really upset. I that to appeal pip 2 years ago and won at tribunal. I could not go through that again as l have had cancer and can't deal with the stress.

    Hi @tombo

    Good Morning!!!!

    It’s great to meet today!!!

    I’m very very sorry to hear about your “pip”

    Do you have someone (Family/Friend) who goes with you to the “f2f”

    Sorry for another question!!! 

    Have  you got a local “CAB”

    They should be able to  “Help /Support” with things.

    If you don’t know please get  back to me & I will see what can do for you!!!

    I worked to help individual to find education training or employment within the voluntary sector and did go to cab for assistance. If l am turned down this time for pip I am just going to apply for it again not go for mandatory reconsideration. l will keep you updated.

    Just be patience,,I know it's easy said than done. Have you got a copy of your report? This will give  you an ideation of what your award may be. You will have a few weeks to wait before the ward letter arrives it all depends on the decision makers work load in your area, I had to wait 10/12 week from f2f to getting letter.

    No, in Northern Ireland we cannot get a copy of the report until the decision has been made. Hate that!

    All  spk  about  assessment!  So in one hour  this  non- doctor  can over turn every  medical report from  doctors  and  put in writing that   any  person  can  do  A.B. C.etc    It  is  a  fix   to  reduce persons from  getting  this entitlement .
