When can I request a copy of my pip assessment report

hi all, I had my f2f this morning which was actually a lot easier than what I thought it was going to be. 
My assessor was very nice and very knowledgable about all my conditions. 
Im on high rate care and mobility at the moment, he said he’s going to suggest im
reviewed in a couple of years just incase things get worse? Which is making me wonder if he knows I’ve not scored enough for high mobility on pip? Or am I being paranoid? Also how and when can I obtain a copy of his report. 
Thank you all xx

    I was told you can request a copy of the report and get a indication of what you’ll be awarded. 
    I’m fairly confident that I will be awarded as he was so helpful, and even helped me word things so the CM would have a better understanding of my difficulties. 
    I have to say, my experience does not reflect the horror stories you read and I’m also not worried that my report will be anything other than what we discussed, as I said he was very nice and even told me not to believe all the horror stories I’ve heard :)

    Since you had your acessment today I would wait to middle or end of next week to request your report which takes about two week to arrive once requested. Good luck and keep posting.

    I phoned PIP the day after my assessment and report arrived 10 days later but might take longer now because of increased volume.  They send them out in request order so the sooner you phone the sooner you'll get report.

    They won't send the report out until they receive both copies back from the health assessment providers.

    There's 2 copies, a digital one which is sent electronically and a paper one which can't be sent this way. The digital copy isn't always sent the same day, even if they do tell you this. Sometimes there's a delay in sending it but most are sent within 2-3 days unless it's chosen for audit.

    I can't find any reference to that on any of the welfare advice sites. How did you find that out? I only ask as when I telephoned the DWP back in 2013 after my first assessment they said that it was all done via the post and that the report will only be sent out to me with the decision letter.
    Hence I never asked for it for any of the three assessments and waited for it when the decision notice was received.

    I have just last month gone through the PIP fiasco. My original reply during the tume of George Smith (IDS real name) was in October 2013.
    A full five (5) years later and two new computer systems  and lost databases the DWP waited until my Motability car had been MOT'd and the lease had expired did they cancel my DLA and require the PIP assessment. 
    At no time was an electronic version available, the whole torturous process took place by mail. 
    Just a complete disgrace even by the pitiful Manky May government

    Sending PIP reports electronically must be quite new.  I'm very impressed that the DWP can be efficient when they try.

    DWP don't send them electronically to the claimant, 2nd class post is always used. I have no idea how a report was received 19 hours after requesting it.

    No but from what they told me ALL reports that are sent to the DWP went via the post. There was no such thing as an electronic version, much the same as picking and choosing what questions were to be asked when you had to make the first telephone call to claim - conveniently forgetting to ask if the claimant wanted the DLA file to be used along with the evidence within it.

    Yes you can still request a copy of it, it's PIP you need to ring.
