Anxiously waiting for PIP

Hollyflynn22 Member Posts: 10 Listener
Hey guys, i suffer from severe anxiety and find ringing up the PIP enquiry line a seriously daunting task.

Today i rang up the PIP enquiry line at around 5:20, they kept me on hold in an anxious mess for 39 minutes and then said they were closed, try again tomorrow.
I was ringing because not last monday, the Monday before when i rang, they said that i should get a text and the forms sent to me and they still haven't come..

Anyone got advice?

thanks :(

    Unfortunately, the only way you'll know if the forms have been sent is to ring again tomorrow. I always find the best time to ring is 8am or close to that time but even then expect a wait.
