Hi Guys,

I've just rang up PIP as I knew they had made a decision this morning but they couldn't tell me what decision. My mind was going in circles. Anyhow I HAVE been awarded pip but the woman couldn't tell me at what rate yet as they were still doing all the finalising whilst she was on the phone. But woo hooo!!!! I'm made up!!!

    That’s good, as a regular poster you must have read many times, request your acessment report about a week after you acessment, it takes about 14 days to arrive once requested, on receiving it you can eirk out what your PIP award may, should be be looking at the points awarded per the PIP descriptors. Good luck.

    Hi @Eadiesmummy1 they received my assessors report on the 26th of oct a day after my f2f and made a decision today. Tomorrow will be exactly three weeks since I had my f2f. I rang on Monday & was told I wouldn't have a decision till Christmas lol, so ringing up is definitely worth it!
