    Hi @MhariMo and wlcome

    Have you asked for / got a copy of the assessment report ?
    If not then you should phone and ask for one, They should be able to tell you whether a decision has been made or not but there are delays in some parts of the country
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    I live in Scotland and I have never heard of anybody in my area being given a copy of there assessment report before the decision letter.
    I have tried phoning but every time I have phoned I have been on hold for 20 minute  plus so I have gave up.
    I think I'm losing my mind I have all sorts of things going through it .
    Just me being stressed out by it.

    Hi @MhariMo, you should still be able to request a copy of the assessment report in Scotland. In fact, I believe it's only in Northern Ireland that the rules differ.

    Recieved a copy  of my assessment  report  today.
    I don't know what to make of it.
    The bit I was wondering about was it says  she has put in for a  review in 3 years.
    Does this mean I'm actually getting pip or am I clutching at straws?

  • MhariMoMhariMo Member Posts: 7 Listener
    I was wondering if it ment I couldn't apply again for 3 years. I'm just so negative  about it all.

    Hi @MhariMo, it sounds like your assessor has made a recommendation for you to be reassessed in three years' time. It's impossible to say for definite whether this means you'll be awarded PIP but it is rare for a decision maker to go against the assessment report. 

    Best of luck and let us know when you receive your official decision.:)
