    Hi @Willy

    A very warm welcome.

    I suggest you contact the PIP helpline and request a copy of your assessment report.

    You will be able to see what points you have been awarded.

    From the date of assessment, it is taking 6 to 8 weeks in getting the award letter and same time for any payment into your bank account.

    Let us know if you need any further details.

    Best wishes

    Hi @Willy,

    It can take between six to eight weeks for a decision on your PIP claim to be made following an assessment. If you ever want to find out more about the status of your claim, then you can contact the PIP helpline on 0800 121 4433.
