Good experience of PIP assessment

edited November 2018 in PIP, DLA, and AA
My son sent in PIP form end of June.  He had his face to face assessment on 14th October 2018 and received a positive decision on 5 November, 2018.  F2F was done at home and was a very fair assessment of his needs. The assessor was courteous, professional and very well prepared and the experience proved we need not have feared the assessment.

    If some assessor can be like that why do they employ the ones that are officious, cold and appear uncaring?
    Then they write up a report that contradicts everything that has been said and what all of the evidence states.

    Some clearly do not want to engage in any form of conversation simply demanding that you agree to a statement that they read out. 

    I do wonder if personality comes into play - especially if you are nervous and it comes over as arrogant or disinterested in the whole thing.

    Hi Atlas, yes there are one or two honest people out there, I have had two now, the first was a young lady who was as you describe, the second was a middle aged nurse who was a disgrace to her profession and obviously had no empathy or compassion for the disabled.
