Received PIP assessment

clarzierclarzier Member Posts: 48 Courageous
Just received pip assessment back. Only got to page 5 and my mind is blown and also I've found a lot of lies. 
Does the assessor award you the points or do two award them.
Im really confused by it all and if I'm reading it correctly there is nothing wrong with me. Please advise....

    hi, clarzier getting pip is not easy I know. it took me several attempts to get it. my advice would be to talk an advisor about this and keep fighting for it.

    @clarzier you should have black dots at the sides of your descriptors these are your points

    There's no black dots it's a PA4 V3 form

    As you have the assessor report you can start preparing for MR.
    Addressing the lies and misrepresentations is important but will not score you any points. You must concentrate on showing that you meet the criteria for an award.
    Go through each descriptor and apply the reliability factors which are often overlooked. If you can get further relevant evidence then you should do so. There is lots of good info on here about the appeal process so please do have a look.

    You might also consider making a complaint about the HCP, this is a separate matter to MR but you can mention that you are doing so

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

    Did you get zero points in both our have they awarded you something but under? 
    That might be a starting point for you.
    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    I only have the assessors report at the moment and she's ticked every box to say I did not qualify for the descriptor so I'm presuming it will be 0 points when I get the letter. She has told lies and sort of contradict herself and just copied and pasted the same answer for every box.

    hi clazier. i had an assessment in november last year. it was an esa assessment but the assessor decided to ask questions about my mobility which i had answered when i first got my pip. he awarded me 0 points and made me out to be a liar. i phoned pip people as soon as i got the results and fortunatley i was told that my pip had not been affected. but i still haven't been awarded the right pip amount. i got a letter from pip saying that they would not change my pip event though i scored 18 points for disability living which should mean that i should be getting enhanced daily living. oh well at least i am getting my pip and in my next pip assessment hey will put it up but that is not until 2021.

    As soon as I got my assessment back I contacted dwp who did confirm that I had scored 0 points and that I hadn't qualified for PIP in fact motability had received notification before I have. The assessment is based on lies and I really don't know where to start

    i feel for you, I really do.
    my pip assessment report 6 daily living 12 mobility.
    i intend to do an MR when decision is made.
    in my case I have short term memory problems after each seizure I have on a daily basis. This has resulted in a degree of long term memory loss as well.
    After daily seizures I have forgotten any conversation, anything that I was doing or about to do. I’m not aware of where I am etc. I don’t do any form of banking, cooking etc.
    and yet because I answered  the assessors questions and I didn’t have a seizure in the 60 mins she was here.
    i can engage with my family on a daily basis so the majority of the time I am fine.even though they prompt me all of the time or wait until I am ready for a conversation.
    this I find extremely embarrassing and upsetting when it happens. However because I smiled at her I wasn’t showing signs of anxiety .
    she says because I talk to my husband about future purchases then I don’t get points for banking,
    Even though I never disclosed it on my form I did tell the assessor that I was getting paranoid about eating & drinking on my own as I could choke whilst having a seizure.
    none of this was recorded nor the fact that I have side effects from the drugs.
    so you can see why I don’t think my 60 minute assessment is worth the paper it’s written on

    The first step is to make a mandatory reconsideration (MR) request.  There is a Mandatory Reconsideration letter tool which will generate a letter for you.


    Try to get some local help from CAB or similar.
