I received a copy of my f2f assessment today. Reading it and checking points scored. I have scored 8 pts. Also the assessor wrote that it would be appropriate to review the claim in 18 months. Does this sound positive? Obviously got to wait for DWP decision. Feel extremely anxious.

    Hello and welcome. The 8 points is that being awarded for daily living or mobility? As for the 18 month review date this is a common thing meaning that you will be reacessed before the 18 month period as your condition or needs have deteriorated some what to amend your award. Chevkon a benefits site to see what other benefits you may be able to claim.

    Hello and thank you. The 8 points was for daily living. I’m not sure whether the 8 points and recommended review time is a positive sign towards getting a yes decision on pip.

    Hi,

    Just answered on your other thread, they mostly go with the report but you'll need to wait for a decision.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
