Confused about report

hi guys, today I have received my report, not award notice which I asked for before award was sent. It’s confused me as the assessor has adviced a review within 9months but also states that they believe my symptoms will still be present in 9 months. So does this mean I have to reapply in 9 months if I am awarded? Or they will just do another f2f?

    I got a report today for my husband saying he should be reviewed in 18 months but the report also says he’ll have lifelong problems and that they don’t think it’ll be any different in 18months they did a paper assessment instead of f2f as they wouldn’t do a home visit so I’ll be interested in what people say jules13 as I have no idea either

    Hi,
    Some where in that report there should be boxes with dots or ticks. You need to compare these with the PIP descriptors to see what was scored, if anything because they don't add the points up when ticking the boxes, you have to add them up yourself. I've not heard of a review in 9 months before. Usually reviews are done 1 year before the award is due to end, if an award has been given of course.

    There are no boxes or ticks But it tells you which option they think is suitable so for example, a, b, c or d etc of the points system so I can work out where the points are etc. Just certain things I do not agree with and she has contradicted herself a bit. Got knows how u get evidence of this lol. I just don’t understand the review bit either

    Yes, it's the options for the descriptors you need to look at and use the PIP descriptors to add the score up. I used the PIP self test to add mine. I have 3 past reports, 2 for myself and 1 for my daughter and they all have boxes with dots. Adding up the score will tell you if an award is recommended or not.

    Award periods can vary from as short as 9 months up to ongoing (10 years)
    However the average is approx 3 years.
    As an aside, an award period for those that are classed as being in the terminal illness (cancer etc) category they will be given a 3 year award.
