Has anyone been called in for a second PIP f2f? If so how soon after the first one did it take place?

    @sheZZa, I had to attend a second F2F when I informed the DWP a change if circumstances. My assessment took place over twelve months since my first assessment as my mobility had worsened. Like my first assessment I had a taxi to and from the assessment which was paid, claimed and repaid in a three weeks or so.

    Thanks for your reply. I had my f2f last Tuesday and had a phone call on Thursday where I was told I might need another f2f and then asked if that would be okay! The assessor said the DWP wanted to ask more questions but I thought that just over 24 hours was pretty quick for her to get a response from them asking her to phone me. It maybe the norm though. Who knows??

    Good luck and think before you answer their questions.

    i did try and think before I answered the assessor’s questions are mr f2f but she just kept on demanding answers straight away until I was so flustered I just gave a quick answer.
    However, this morning I had a text from the DWP stating that they had received the written report and I would hear their decision in 5/6 weeks. I am not expecting to be successful but I am ready for the fight. The assessor had told me that she had never heard of one of my conditions which says it all. She also kept on and on repeating that the pain in my back was due to an Epidural (which it is not it’s due to another condition) until I said yes to shut her up!So I’m definitely not expecting to be awarded PIP again. I am preparing for battle lol.
