Pip stories

Any stories from first time pip claimants who didn't have to go to face 2 face assessments?

Good or bad I'd like to hear them thanks.

    I asked for a face to face assessment for my own reasons. I wanted to really convey how hard walking is for DS. So I ended up taking him to the assessment centre with his wheelchair in tow. The assessment report that was sent contained a number of lies and inaccurate information. I ended up relying on a social worker when we contested the decision. Really frustrating since I spent several hours one Saturday answering all of the questions on the application form.
