    Hi,

    It really would have been better to have started your own post with this question, rather than add it on the end of someone elses post. This way it could have easily been missed.

    You can ask DWP for a copy of the assessment report. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. It's also very useful if you need to ask for the Mandatory Reconsideration, if the decision doesn't go in your favour.

    The longest award for PIP is 10 years, with review at 9 years. This means if a decision does go in your favour then you will be re-assessed at some point. There is no life time awards for PIP.

    Hopefully the HCP was as nice as you thought and you'll be given an award. Good luck.

    Put it another way, what would you have done if the nurse had said that you had no chance of getting any award? Would you have walked out of the assessment without saying anything?

    The last thing the assessor wants to do is antagonise you. This is the same reason why the DWP and the assessing companies refuse to normally allow a claimant to sit next to each other so that the claimant can see what is being written. Health & Safety reasons in the main.

    Welcome,request a copy of your accessment report on receiving about14 days after requesting you will see how your accessment has gone and what your award may or should be. I hope the acessor was honest as you say. Time will tell, keep us updated and keep posting.
