    @Dazz66
    It sounds like you've done all you can do to rectify the whereabouts where the form is.

    Its a case of hoping it gets sorted and keep phoning the DWP. Good luck.

    @Dazz66 I've dealt with Capita but never had any grief. Your just gonna Keep on at the DWP As Capita reckon they've sent the report back.

    I know Capita are a**holes and have heard shocking things regarding them.

    @Dazz66 looks like Capita might do another assessment then as they've lost it. Not saying you will have another assessment, but it don't look good.

    Hi,

    It's very likely that your report was chosen for audit. If it has been then this can delay returning it to DWP and there's no time scale how long it will be in audit for either. My daughter's first PIP claim in 2017 her report was sent to audit and it stayed there for 5 weeks. Absolutely nothing you can do until it's been returned to DWP. I know it's very frustrating.

    Have you not questioned/complained about having another assessment?

  • meaghanmeaghan Member Posts: 37 Connected
    yes I have complained very vocally and demanded why this has happened ,they said its for more imformation even though I was previously told they have all the info and wont need another assessment ,I have had the second assessment HC assessor had no idea about 1st assessment and I had to have full assessment again from start to finished . so stressful so now its another waiting game ,so from I first applied for pip it is 21 weeks at present and counting ,my anxiety has been through the roof very unfair I think ..my personal view is I think the lost my 1st assessment ,but who knows ,,
  • meaghanmeaghan Member Posts: 37 Connected
    Thank you yes thats a very good idea .it makes sense just hadnt heard it been done before but hopefully im not waiting as long this time for outcome ...

    Chances are is that the first assessment was not good enough and there was too much information to allow for just a phone call to you. It may be that amendments needs to be made but the original assessor left before they could be done. They won't have lost it, it will be because it was not good enough. It works in your favour because absent information generally means no proof = no award. 
    Given that this is a mess created by a DWP agency/contractor and the claimant is being put to more stress and upset, I presume, should there not be compensation to be paid?

    Its very stressful having 2 assessments so close together and still no decision..the second assessor was shocked she hadn't been informed of first 1 i had with no reason given ..they dont realise or else they just dont care the stress we are put under i have been so unwell since all this started ..its a sham ..thank you for all the help ..

    The attitude does seem to suggest that it is all one sided. They make the mess - hard luck on the claimant. Then if you want to carry on with the claim you have to go through it all again with no offer of apology or explanation.
