    Hi,

    The assessment will be the same as the first time. Answer those questions with as much detail as possible and avoid answering with just a yes or no. Remember, PIP isn't awarded based on a diagnosis, its how those condition affect you daily.

    Hopefully you sent in evidence to support your claim, as they very rarely contact anyone for evidence. The onus is on you to make sure it's sent it. Good luck.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
