    Ask DWP to send you a copy of the assessor's report which will give you a good indication of what your award will be.  Don't worry until you get something in writing as it might be good news.

    I’ve just had the letter about switching and any changes. People say if changes then dla stopped and 
    new pip claim done, so for now do I let it go ahead knowing whatever I do it’s going to be stopped. I’ve fibromyalgia and personality disorder and am now a wreck. I haven’t phoned them as scared and I can’t seem to take in letters or fill in forms without messing it up because I can’t think straight so reading this post has me worse but we gotta fight them as they want everyone not to appeal and save money so genuine are losing everything.

    Good luck to you all. I am one of the very lucky guys as mine was one of the few that was overturned at the MR stage.
    so this goes to show all is not lost. 
    You must try and be strong good luck

  • exdxexdx Member Posts: 12 Listener
    hey sorry to hear that lucy how did your mandatory go? I heard if that gets rejected u can wait like 8 months for a tribunal which is crazy ive been reading so many horrible storys about assessors lying when sending there report it disgusts me how they can do this to people and sleep at night its shocking, I'm also worried now as Ive been waiting for 2 weeks for a copy of assessors report and I phoned today and was told the person didn't even put in the request for a copy from when I phoned the first time I never thought anything of this but I'm reading more and more bad storys about lies from them I think its all tactics on there part.

    also woman on the phone said they don't have to give the copy until they get the decision is that right? I said I can ask for a copy at any time to her

    Hi @exdx, I'm sorry to hear about the problems you're having with PIP - it sounds like you're having a really tough time.

    If you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected]

    hey all I got the copy of assesors report today and I dunno weather it was because her English was not that great she has a lot of mistakes and I don't expect to get my pip to start off even tho I brought in all my medication which is medication for depression,aniexty and medication for anti-sickness she has put down I take no medication I brought the medication and showed her it on the day, for some reason even tho I told I I do not cook my own meals to due me sometimes forgetting to leave the cooker on and walking away she has put I cook my own food, also shes put I remember my medication each day when I wake up when I actually told her my mum or family member have my meds and will make me take them at the right times due to me trying to kill myself with overdose in past, now the nexrt part which has baffled me which I dunno is a actual mistake on her part of just a pure lie, I told her I don't leave the house unless I need yo i.e gps appointment and the pip meeting I once went 3 years without leaving the house and never attend any family socials because of my anxiety as its really bad I don't even come down and see family members if there in my own house its tht bad, yet she did put down that I feel anxious and isoclated myself but has put he does attend any social gatherings which baffles me as I take away the gp meetings and leaving the house for medicial reasons the last time I left my home for any other reason my about 2011 for family event I just don't go out now I dunno if that was a actual mistake on her part because her English was not that good and she has a lot of spelling mistakes in her report I'm thinking she meant to write he does not attend I dunno why shes put that, she also put down I make my own bidgeting decisions even tho I told her my mum controls my bank and I don't deal with any of that stuff, atleast she did write down I looked unshaven and unkempt, she did right I needed prompting during assessment by mum and I was fidety, ive went through it all and she hasn't gave me the points she should have on thing I clearly stated and if I didn't state it clear enough my mum would repeat what I said to her having said all that she then baffles me at the end saying she thinks I should be awarded it etc and says a review should happen in 2 years, I actually believe due to her English not being that great and my very bad anxiety she may have not heard me or maybe I'm just giving her too much credit, anyways time will tell there is plenty in that report for me to appeal no matter what
