"We have recieved the written report of your pip assessment. we will write to you once we have made a decision on your pip. As a guide you will hear from us within 6 weeks. You dont need to contact us unless any of the details you have given us have changed" 

How long after recieving this text did you recieve your decision letter? I just wonder if i should expect it to be longer. my assessment was last saturday, i had waited 4 months jusr for the assessment part so am shocked to have recieved this text so early. Thank you for any answers x

    The text was informing you that they most likely have all the information neede to make a decision on your application for PIP and will let you know the outcome in aprox 6 weeks. You can request a copy of your acessment report this will give you an indication of how your acessment went and what your possible outcome maybe by looking at the score points awarded. But you still have to wait for the official award letter notification.good luck and keep posting.

    @wilko thank you that was very informative. I was thinking about ringing and requesting the report but would probably be disheartened if i recieved less than what i thought or no reward at all so i think im going to wait it out. @topshoes that sounds very quick! im in south yorkshire x

    Requesting a copy of the report as early as possible gives you more time if you need to prepare for an unfavourable outcome

    @Eadiesmummy1 yes i was not going to worry about the assessment or the out come  , so when i see the letter i thought what do they want now, and it was from pip lol , i was shocked too , i  think it could be  as i was in the room for a hour and 45 mins they got the letter to me quickly lol  ,  got it for 2 years , but i not going to dwell over it as i see it im not a greedy person and it better then nothing at all  , but i hope you do well

    @CockneyRebel I know, I'm naturally paranoid anyway so have already been looking at mandatory reconsideration options haha! @topshoes i was in for an hour and a half, and i thought that was bad. Fingers crossed xx

    @topshoes you had your F2F the day after me didn't you, mine was the 25th October. Still waiting for a decision from DWP. But scored 11 points on daily living on the assessors report.

    The text was just informing you they've received the report back. The next text you'll receive is one that says they have all the information they need. Waiting times can be anything up to 6 weeks from now. I agree with asking for the report.
