Quick question

CharliCharli Member Posts: 49 Connected
hi applied for pip in February for my husband as DLA was ending in April or May they said he didn’t qualify as he couldn’t attend assessment  DLA ended 5 June cab helped with a MR which we won, DLA was never reinstated, they did a paper assessment, my question is will pip be backdated to when DLA ended thanks

    That would seem to be the most likely thing to happen. I am going through the same process myself but am still receiving DLA at the moment. I haven't received my letter informing of their decision as yet so I am only going on what they explained when I applied.

    Thanks for replying the assessment report was finished on the 7th of this month, so it’s 3 weeks tomorrow the report was very favourable so it’d just a case of wait and see if they agree with the assessor good luck with your claim I hope your successful

    Thank you @Charli. I hope things go well and cannot see how they could refuse me high rate mobility at least but my MH issues continue to make me worry and that won't stop until I receive their decision.

    even though I don’t have mh issues I still worry I try to hide it from my husband as he has enough to deal with, some people seem to receive a text saying they have everything to make a decision but we haven’t if it wasn’t for citizens advice I wouldn’t have known he’d won the ME as they never sent a letter then either hopefully we’ll both hear soon I’ll keep you posted

    They only send text messages if a mobile number was put on the form. Yes the PIP will be backdated to the date the DLA stopped.

    Hi poppy123456 we never received a text about the MR or that they have the report in fact we haven’t received a text since March when they received the form our number has been the same for 5+ years and is always included in any correspondence with them so I have no clue why they haven’t text

    I've never known them send a text when waiting for the MR decision.

    That’s ok then we never received a letter telling us we’d won MR either if not for CAB I wouldn’t have had a clue

    Also they’ve never informed us that they’ve received the assessment report even though I’ve had a copy for 2 weeks, it can’t be just us that doesn’t  get letters off them

    I don't understand why you were asking if people receive texts when they have all the evidence they need to make a decision if you know the MR decision already? Are you saying the haven't sent an award letter yet? If so then you're husband will need to ring them tomorrow morning when they open because they are the only ones that can tell you what's going on. 

    During my daughters PIP claim (i'm her appointee) yes I put my mobile number down on the form but I received no text messages at all through out the claim. I didn't even receive a letter when they had all the evidence they needed, I received nothing at all, all the way through her claim process.
