Paper based assessment
Hello, the other day PIP text me to say that they received my assessment. I phoned up to query this as I haven't been for a face to face assessment and they explained that I've had paper based one. I've got schizophrenia and am on a community based mental health act order. I sent them about 80 pages of related evidence. I'm worried that I've not been offered the opportunity to explain myself in a face to face interview and that this might go against me. PIP said that they would reach a decision within the next 6 weeks (as a guide). Is a paper based assessment a good or a bad thing? Does any one have any experience?
