Hi there. I had my face to face pip assesment 3 weeks ago. I rung pip up 4 days,later to request my medical report which they sent no problem.
The amount of lies told on the f2f report is unreal.
Ive now received a letter saying they now have all the relevent information and they will be in touch when a decision has been made and not to contact them.
Has anybody else received a letter saying this if so how long after did you get your decision?
Many thanks vic xxxx

    I was told it takes four weeks from the date they received the independent review - four weeks later my letter arrived in the post. Good luck @vic36

    Yes if you live in the UK you can. Leave it about a week after the assessment and then ring DWP.
    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.

    There's huge backlogs in most areas and some are waiting in excess of 1 year.
