Recent Pip Assessment

AmazingRhemaAmazingRhema Member Posts: 14 Listener
I just had my recent pip assessment. I took my partner with me to the centre, waited nearly 20 minutes (did not have a great sleep at all! Lol) I sat down with the lady, I forgot her name and title. She asked questions (as if she had not read the form) from scratch. My partner contributed. My form was filled in by a woman in CAB who seemed to have put things not too correct. But everything seemed consistent to the form if that makes any logical sense. I asked to see what she wrote, she told me I have to call DWP to see it I can do it from today ( the assessment was thursday) 

Can anybody help? Have you had an assessor nice as pie, and a good outcome? I'm so scared  :s

    Hi,

    Yes, all my assessments for PIP and ESA have had a good outcome. Every HCP i've had was lovely, in fact when i went for my PIP assessment review 2 years ago it was a really cold day and i was freezing. She turned the heating up in the room for me.

    All reports were honest and truthful and the decisions went with the report each time.

    Of course there's people out there that don't have good reports, with lies being told etc but the good stories are certainly there. We just don't hear about them.

    The report will give you some idea what the decision will be as they mostly go with it. There's no timescales for decisions but hopefully not too long. Good luck.

    Hello and welcome, phone the DWP,and ask for a copy of your acessment report, it can take up to 14 days to arrive but recently people have received them within a few days, on receiving the report you will, can work out what your award should, may be by adding up the black dots awarded against each PIP descriptor at the end of the report. The decision makers at DWP mostly go with the recommendations in the report but if it’s good newyou still have to wait for the official award letter notification, and if it’s not what you expect then you can go over the report prepareing to start a MR if you need to after receiving the award notification letter.
