just come across this comment and it made me chuckle       ????A DWP spokesperson said: ‘We’re committed to ensuring everyone has a good experience of PIP. PIP assessments look at how people are affected by their disability or health condition over the majority of days in a year, rather than just assessing ability on a single day NOPE THEY DO IT IN 20MINS TO AN HOUR ON DAY OF ACESSMANT ???

    Over a year. Really. 
    Even I can't assesses myself over a year and I live with me.  :o 

    They did take medical evidence into account on mine, but dismissed anything I didn't have evidence for 
    You are not suffering with anxiety because you are not on medication for it and you have no specialist input. First part false second part true. 
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    To qualify for PIP a condition should be in place for three months and likely to last for a further nine months ie. a year

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

    Thanks CR you have a way of explaining the criteria simply, if only claimants would read posts and descriptors and do a self test it may,would save them a lot of stress and prepare better for their f2f
