Hello, I have been on pip now for two years and I have my review in November next year. I have read a lot of the post and have seen people have been advised to request their assessment report. I didn’t realise I could do this, is it to late after two years to request my report.

    Hi,

    I believe they only keep them for a certain length of time, how long this is i have no idea. The only thing you can do is ring DWP and ask, if they still have it they'll send it to you.

    Given what the DWP say about not wanting evidence that is more than 2 years old, a copy of the assessor's report that is two years old will in any event will be of no use or ornament to anybody.

    You keep saying the evidence mustn't be more than 2 years old.... i've never ever had any problems sending supporting evidence that's more than 2 years old and it's always been accepted. I've also heard lots of others haven't had any problems either.

    I didn't say that, I pointed out that it is the DWP that say it on their claim forms.

    Although in my case I too sent in evidence from 2011 and 2012 for the 2017 re-assessment. The DWP Case Manager when giving reasons for the decision made a point of writing and saying that the evidence sent in was too old to be of any relevance.

    So I agree with you in that you can send it in, but there is no guarantee that it will be accepted as good enough to support a claim made up to 6 years later.
