Hi, my 16 year old son had his f2f a couple of weeks ago, the report was recieved by the dwp on the 3rd of this month, i also requested a copy of the report and on daily living hes scored 15 points and 8 on mobility, i am just wondering will the decision maker go with whats on the report also will i be waiting much longer for the decision?

    In general, yes the DWP will rubber stamp the report.
    How long? It depends what their work load is - it could be days, weeks or a couple of months - who knows.

    Yadnad, has answered correctly with the decision maker adding a time of how long the award will  before a reacessment is required. It's the waiting that upsets many people but you have read the report so know what you may, should get but not for how long for. Good luck.

    Hi all.
    I had my Pip assessment 5wks ago & still haven't heard anything. In my assessment the assessor told me that she was not even going to ask me to complete a physical as she could see how much pain & discomfort I was in. I had to take pain relief half way through sitting the assessment. I'm wondering if this can be taken as a good sign of a positive decision for my claim?

    Hi, ask the dwp for a copy of the report, that will give you a good idea of what the decision might be.

    Hi rayrar80
    Thank you for your feedback. I have recieved a letter this morning saying they have all the information they requite to make a decision. If I ring them, can I ask for a copy of my assessment or do I have to put it in writing?
