Pip decision

Red1983dawnRed1983dawn Member Posts: 26 Listener
Hi all

Phoned pip today and they said they have made my decision and that it is favourable as my full decision is not on the system yet.

    Hi,

    Once a decision is made it takes 24 hours for it to show on the other screen. Until it does show, they won't know anything at all. Ring them back this time tomorrow and they'll be able to tell you what the decision is.

    Good luck.

    Hi poppy

    Phoned back this afternoon and was put through to a case manager and they said they would rather me see my decision letter than tell me over the phone. 

    Unsure what this means 

    Thanks

    Never heard of this before. Try again tomorrow and just speak to an adviser and it will show on the screen.

    Hi red1983dawn, Good luck for tomorrow. Hope it’s good news!!

    Hi thor14

    I've already been told that it is a favorable decision which wasn't available on the screen on Friday. I am also confused that they have used evidence from July 17.

    Thanks for the support

    I’m just wondering maybe if u weren’t getting the correct rate to start with maybe they are back dating money for you since July 17,that could be why they are saying they would rather you read the letter. 
  • Red1983dawnRed1983dawn Member Posts: 26 Listener
    I am not sure but I think it might be because I' suffering from a mental health issue 
  • thor14thor14 Member Posts: 39 Connected
    The waiting is dreadful. Hopefully you will hear more tomorrow. Good luck!!

    I'm not sure how they know this information if the decision isn't visible. If you didn't send that evidence they may have contacted someone on your list of contacts for further evidence. How do you know they used that evidence?

    You could torture yourself wondering how they knew it was a favourable decision, they clearly saw that on the screen as to why they won’t tell you anymore,that’s why I was wondering have they back dated something. Good luck

    Hi poppy12345 it's on my report from the assessor that they have considered evidence from July 17 that's why I've been so confused 
  • thor14thor14 Member Posts: 39 Connected

    Phoned pip this morning and was told that I had been awarded the enhanced daily living only

    Great news. However, if you're not happy then you have 1 month from the date of the decision to request the MR. Before doing this you should get face to face advice because no one on an internet forum can tell you if there's any risk to your current award.

    Thanks poppy123456 am thinking of taking a mandatory reconsideration as my first claim I got normal daily and a 2 year award and this time I got enhanced daily and only a 12 month award. So am confused by that.

    Thanks

    Hope this helps

    The short length of time for the award means that they think your condition will change in this time.

    I’ve just phoned pip and only been awarded the standard care nothing for mobility witch I feel is wrong as I can’t even walk 50m and I use crutches 
  • Red1983dawnRed1983dawn Member Posts: 26 Listener
    That's ridiculous and atd1984 and poppy123456 I've been told by my psychiatrist that I will never be able to work again due to my condition 
  • thor14thor14 Member Posts: 39 Connected
    Hi atd 1984, i’m So sorry to hear this, more stress again. I am dreading my outcome as i’m hearing of so so many people either being put of or getting not what they feel they r entitled to. Unfair!! Good luck.

    PIP isn't about not being able to work. People work and claim PIP.

    Last year my daughter was awarded Enhanced rate for both parts for 1 year. She has a learning disability and autism.... there's no cure for both of these, yet she was given the short award because they think her condition will improve. She needs help, support and guidance every single day.
