    I am not 100% sure it could mean that every so often, so many acessments have to go for an audit where it is looked at to make sure the acessor has carried out the acessment correctly. And that Capita are performing to DWP guide lines? Have tried to request a copy of the acessment report? Takes about two weeks once you have requested it and usually arrives before the award letter.

    Hi, are you 100% sure his PIP report has been sent for audit? You say you've received a copy of the assessment report? Are you absolutely sure?

    DWP will not send a copy of the report out to you until they have received both copies back from the assessment providers. If the report has been sent for audit then it wouldn't have been returned to DWP. Files are chosen at random for audit but this process is done before the report is sent back.

    Something isn't right here. Someone is possibly not telling you the truth, or you misheard what they told you.

    Yes indeed "should" i like that one. My PIP assessment was sent to audit and stayed there for almost 6 weeks before being returned back to DWP. Usually they will tell you there's "no time scale" for the auditing process too.

    I think my sons claim was a bit difficult he was awarded low mobility 3 yrs ago but because he can’t follow and plan journeys someone told me to reapply with a change of circumstance because he should have enhanced the CM actually rang to ask when his condition deteriorated but it was a case of my fault for not submitting enough evidence about his disabilities so because he had a f2f 3 yrs ago he said that he would have to go back and look at report from 2015 because he was wrongly assessed
